Mourinho lost 1:2 to Klopp’s Liverpool. The head coach of the guests was very disappointed after the match. According to the Portuguese specialist, his team deserved to win.
Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has commented after losing to Liverpool in the 13th round of the English Premier League.
The score in the match at “Anfield” was opened by Mohamed Salah in the 26th minute, after his shot, the ball was thrown in the goal with a ricochet from the leg of Eric Dyer. Tottenham equalized with a goal from Son Heung Min in the 33rd minute, but in the 90th minute Hugo Lloris could not handle Roberto Firmino’s header, and the victory was left to the Merseysiders.
“We were close to victory. Not to draw, not to win! But we missed our chances. We had moments. We controlled the game. Even a draw would be a bad result and imagine how we get a loss.
Sure, we made some mistakes, some things need to be corrected, but the result is very unfair. We played the visiting champion, and we had a higher chance of winning. Tottenham were brilliant, Liverpool did not look like champions, European champions, world champions – there was no difference on the pitch. I told Klopp that a better team had lost. He disagreed with me, but that is his view.
If I had acted as he did at the edge of the field, I would not be there. Is he excited? “For some reason I am different,” said the Portuguese after the game.
After 13 matches in the English Premier League, Liverpool leads the tournament table with 28 points, while London Tottenham is in second place with 25 points.
