Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho said he was unfairly treated by officials as he reacted angrily to the touchline behaviour of Jurgen Klopp in Liverpool’s 2-1 win in a game between the top two in the Premier League(PL) on Wednesday.
Mourinho and Klopp exchanged words at full-time shortly after Roberto Firmino’s 90th minute header ended Tottenham’s 11-game unbeaten run in the league.
“If I behave like he does on the touchline, I have no chance to stay there and I am out one minute after,” said Mourinho.
“Or do you want me to take the table with the time from the fourth official’s hands to see what happens to me?
“I am saying for some reason I am different, and that’s sad.”
“I told him the best team lost, he disagrees but that’s his opinon,” added Mourinho on what he said to Klopp after the game.
Klopp said the defending champions were worthy winners, but warned Tottenham are contenders for their first league title in 60 years.
“Completely deserved,” said Klopp. “A really good game against a top side, a counter-attacking monster. You lose one ball and you end up with an 80 percent possibility in your own box so you have to really concentrate.
“Spurs is 100 percent one of the favourites. In these top six games they are not bothered to sit back and play on the counter. They will be there until the end.”
