Tottenham lost to Liverpool bitterly: Mourinho was bitter, provoking Klopp

Mourinho was quite bitter when the home team lost to Liverpool in the 90th minute and went from outside to the press conference room with Klopp.

Mourinho’s Tottenham has just lost the unbeaten streak in the Premier League quite bitterly. They were Liverpool’s visitors in the 13th round and finished 1-2 with Firmino’s goal in the 90th minute. However, things were different if Bergwijn did not finish on the post at the beginning of the second half.

Losing at the last minute, Mourinho was clearly not satisfied. The Portuguese teacher immediately tried to “let go” when he greeted Klopp after the final whistle. The radio station returned to the scene where Klopp stopped and smiled after Mourinho’s words. The two sides had a few words and then separated with a smile on Klopp’s lips.

The reporters at the press conference were very curious about this and “Special One” did not hesitate to share. Of course, Mourinho also did not pass up the opportunity to tease his opponent.

“I told Klopp that the stronger team lost. He disagrees but that is his opinion. By the way, I have to say that if I take action off the border like Klopp, I would be sent off. If I were to hold the fourth referee’s stoppage sign (implying Pep Guardiola’s actions in the match between Man City and West Brom), so would fate. In short, everything between us is fine. It is none of my business to referees letting Klopp act like this. I’m just sad because I am different from the rest, but life is like that”.

In addition, the Portuguese teacher also shared his feelings about the match. “I think we had a good game against an opponent with great attack power. When you lose the ball, there is an 80% chance that the ball will reach your penalty area. The score setting table is completely deserved. It was a nice goal and Firmino had a very good header. I think my team is at its highest level of ability”.

Meanwhile, coach Jurgen Klopp also countered extremely smartly. “I think my English is much worse than you know. He approached me and said something. Looks like the better team has lost or something like that. You better ask Mourinho.”

Klopp threatened to withdraw Liverpool from the English League Cup

After the goals beat Arsenal in the League Cup (Carabao Cup), coach Jurgen Klopp warned Liverpool could withdraw from this tournament if the Football Association of England (FA) does not arrange a suitable schedule for soccer team.

Klopp’s army reached the quarterfinals after a 5–5 draw with Arsenal, before winning 5-4 in a penalty shootout at Anfield at home on October 31.

In this match, Liverpool went up to create a good distance of 3-1, 4-2 but then was overturned by Arsenal to lead 5-4. However, in the final seconds of the match, Divock Origi’s goal helped Liverpool force the visitors to enter the series of brainstorming matches on the 11m mark.

It was a dramatic game and increased the excitement for the tournament, but Liverpool may not appear again in the upcoming Carabao Cup when Klopp is worried that the students are exhausted due to the schedule. Accordingly, the match day for the quarterfinals is scheduled for the third week of December, when Liverpool are present in Qatar to attend the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup. If there is no suitable change – maybe the week starts on 6.1.2020, the expected date for the first leg of the semi-final, the “Reds” of Merseyside will refuse to play.

“FIFA informed us that the Club World Cup will be in Qatar and we have to go there to play. The Premier League organizing committee said we had to play in a tournament that was obvious. But the Carabao Cup, if they do not find a way to arrange a suitable schedule, then we will not play”, Klopp told reporters.


The German military added that they hoped it started then (meaning finding a way to schedule the Carabao Cup quarter-finals). They really thought that would bring fairness. “We would not want to be a victim of this. We want to win, we have done it and if they don’t find a suitable day for us, then Liverpool cannot play in the next round (quarterfinals) and the opponent may go on or Arsenal will replace it”.


According to the British press, it seems very unlikely that the FA will not comply with Klopp’s request due to its involvement in commercial and television contracts. Ironically, Liverpool in the previous round feared being eliminated from the Carabao Cup due to the use of unqualified player Pedro Chirivella in the victory over Milton Keynes Dons. However, the FA is said to have relieved when it only slightly punished Champions League champions.
