Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has doubted Barcelona’s mentality after the Spanish giants allowed Liverpool progress to the UCL final after a 3 – 0 advantage from the first leg.
Liverpool ended up qualifying to the Champions League final in a 4-3 aggregate win.
After the clash, Mourinho blasted the La Liga giants and spoke about their weak mentality.
His words, “If you see that goal in an under-14 or an under-15 match you would say, ‘the kids are sleeping, the kids have no mentality to play football, the kids have to learn the basics of the game,”
“But we are speaking about the best players in the world and to concede that goal really shows you a state of mind.
“At half-time I said if Liverpool score a second goal the atmosphere will be really difficult to cope with and the atmosphere was really difficult to cope with.
“But Barcelona have some of the best players in the world. It’s their natural habitat to play at that level, it’s their natural habitat to play Barcelona [versus] Real Madrid, Champions League final, Champions League semi-final every season.”
“It’s something that’s so difficult for me to explain, it’s so difficult for me to believe that my team is winning 3-0 in the first leg and we’re going to lose 4-0 in the second leg.
“I would like to see Valverde try to explain but I still believe it will be very difficult for him to explain.”
