Jose Mourinho has recently been repeatedly asking why journalists don’t hound Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino, despite the managers of Liverpool and Spurs having not won anything at their respective clubs.
It’s undoubtedly a tactic to try and alleviate pressure from himself and Manchester United, who have already lost two matches this term.
But instead of getting involved in a war of words when told about Mourinho’s comments, Klopp played it very, very cool…
“He’s right, that’s right if he is speaking about me. He’s probably the most successful manager in the PL in that moment. I have no problem with that,” Klopp said, and you can listen to the full response in the answer below.

Let’s see what position both men are in come June.
