Liverpool boss Klopp tells Mourinho: Not trophies, it's the ride that matters

Liverpool boss Klopp tells Mourinho: Not trophies, it's the ride that matters

I have been in dressing rooms when managers have behaved this way and it feels like they are trying to destroy you'.

"The latest is to tell you that in Valencia only [David] De Gea and [Nemanja] Matic were available to play and didn't travel by decision", Mourinho said. But he might have his reasons for doing it.

"I think they are the ones who give you the energy to do it because, at times, you're dead", Rashford said.

Speaking on Friday, Mourinho, told reporters: "I think trophies matter, it matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy".

"I think sometimes to just say is not very intelligent".

It no doubt annoys Mourinho that Klopp is seen as more progressive and exciting than he is, and there are admittedly flaws in that perception. That is how I understand life, I learned it a little bit in football.

"It's not a great record against them over the last few years but it's a different year, different teams and different players. It was in the last seconds of the game". But the kind of football they play is not the same when I was used to play.

"I'm not so sure United have got that and they haven't shown it yet this season at all in any game whatsoever".

"But it should all be about Liverpool and I can see them winning well".

Nicol, who won the European Cup with Liverpool, has warned Manchester United if they do not change their ways they could be blown away.

So often dwarfed by the wealth of City's Abu Dhabi owners and United's vast commercial revenue, Liverpool were this summer's biggest spenders in the transfer market. I don't think we always got the right result, a year ago they had a very good start in the home game against us but then we more or less took over and couldn't get the game back. Phil Jones or Eric Bailly will partner him at the back with Victor Lindelof still sidelined. I hope the people are ready again to create an atmosphere like Tuesday night (in their Champions League victory over Napoli), which was special'.

"I was aiming for that side of the goal, but I can't put the ball in a better place, to be honest".

"Of course I'm aware of the criticism but when we make the analysis and switch off the sound, it's all quality", said the German.
