Jose Mourinho SWIPES at Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp over Champions League failure

That’s according to two-time European Cup winner Jose Mourinho.

Liverpool are aiming to win the trophy they failed to capture last year when they came up against Real Madrid in Kiev.

But this time round, the odds are in favour of the Reds as they come up against fellow Premier League side Tottenham.

Jurgen Klopp’s side overcame a 3-0 deficit in the semi-finals against Barcelona to win the tie 4-3.

Tottenham beat Ajax on away goals after the tie finished 3-3 thanks to a second-half Lucas Moura hat-trick in Amsterdam.

And Mourinho believes that if Klopp fails to win his third European final in four years, he will find it seriously hard.

“If Jurgen wins, it’s an incredible achievement for him,” he told Sky Sports.

“If Jurgen doesn’t win, you know… to lose three Champions League finals… phew… that has to be really, really hard.

“But he is a very positive guy, I’m sure he’s just thinking about winning.

“Being a manager, and understanding what it means for a manager to play a Champions League final.

“There is always a negative side of it and the negative side is that one team will lose and one manager will lose.”

Mourinho went on to opine that Tottenham could see a turning point in their history if they are victorious at the Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.

“Spurs are not winning titles and to win the first one would be fantastic,” he added.

“It could lead to other domestic trophies because the Champions League is the biggest one of all.

“Finals are not to play, finals are to win.”
