Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho praised Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool’s riposte against Barcelona.
Jose Mourinho believes that the memorable return of Liverpool in the Champions League against Barcelona was entrusted to coach Jurgen Klopp who congratulated the German.
Liverpool, last season’s finalist, completed the great Anfield escape, where the Reds eliminated a 3-0 first-leg deficit in the semifinal to win 4-0 on Tuesday.
The Bretons of Divock Origi and their replacement Georginio Wijnaldum surprised Liverpool, Lionel Messi and Barca, in Merseyside, en route for the final of June 1 in Madrid.
Former Manchester United boss Mourinho praised Klopp’s impact after the match: “I have to say that this comeback has a name, Jurgen.
“I think it was not tactics or philosophy, but heart and soul and empathy he created with this group of players.
“They were in danger of ending a fantastic season with nothing to celebrate and they are now on the verge of becoming European champions, and I think Jurgen deserves it.
“The work they do in Liverpool is fantastic, I think it’s about him, it reflects his personality, he never gives up his fighting spirit, every player gives everything.”

Mourinho added, “He is not crying because he’s missing a player or playing 50-60 games a season, but other leagues’ coaches say their players are playing too many games. Jurgen today.
“I repeat, Jurgen is the man responsible for this feat, because of his fantastic personality, his fantastic mentality, the team was there and the team believed in it.”
The winner of the Ajax-Tottenham draw will face Liverpool at Wanda Metropolitano next month.
