“By the way, if I behaved the way on the touchline like he does, I have no chance to stay there – and I’m out.
Mourinho later added: “Everything is fine between us. The referees let him behave the way he does. It’s not my problem. I feel sad for it because I can not do it but it’s just the way it is.”
Klopp was asked for his thoughts on Mourinho’s comments, and looked confused.
He replied: “My English is worse than I thought. He’s next to me – maybe you ask him? I thought he said to me the better team lost. Nothing about my behaviour on the touchline.”
