"The best team lost" | Mourinho unhappy with Liverpool loss


Share this article


Jose Mourinho was less than pleased with Jurgen Klopp after Tottenham's dramatic defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino's header 30-seconds from the end of 90-minutes saw the champions win 2-1.

The Brazilian's goal saw Liverpool move three-points clear of Tottenham at the top of the Premier League table.

Naturally, Mourinho cut quite an upset figure in his post-match interview with Amazon's Gabriel Clarke.

"I told him the best team lost," the Spurs boss responded when asked what he said to Klopp at the full-time whistle.

"He disagreed, but that's his opinion."

Mourinho also took issue with Klopp's behaviour on the sideline, particularly an incident with the fourth official prior to half-time.

"By the way, if I behaved the same way on the touchline like he does I have no chance to stay there and I am out one minute later.

"Come on, that's animated? That's animated?!"

He departed by saying, "For some reason I am different, that's the only thing I'll say. And that's sad."

Klopp refused to take the bait in his own post-match debrief with Gabby Logan.

"My English is worse than I thought," the Liverpool boss said, "He actually told me - he's there, maybe you can ask him - I thought he said to me 'the better team lost', and nothing about my behaviour on the touchline."
