Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho has come out to say that he is treated differently than other Premier League coaches.
He recently revealed that he would have been sent off if he behaved the same way as Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp during their clash tonight.
According to Jose, he even told Klopp that Spurs deserved to win the match, and that there is a double standard when it comes to coaching behaviour,
He added that Klopp and the Liverpool bench were obviously putting undue pressure on the officials to show Giovani Lo Celso a second yellow, and this led him to remove the Argentine after 58 minutes.
His words, “I told him the best team lost and he disagreed, but that’s his opinion,”
“If I behave the same way he does on the touchline, I do not stay there. That’s animated? For some reason I am different.”
“The game was always under control. I feel it was a very undeserved result, but that’s football,”
“At half-time we move a little bit the pieces, but overall the game was always under control and I am very pleased with the performance.
“The changes were to find counterattack situations which we did immediately, but with Gio’s yellow card and the incredible pressure these guys on the touchline put on the officials, I was afraid of the yellow card and I had to take him off. I am not the one to speak to my colleagues about their behaviour on the touchline.”
“Very good performance, of course some mistakes, some things to improve, a very unfair result. My team told me I am right when I say from the beginning of the season we go to every match to win. We played against the champions in their stadium and we had the best chances to win,” Mourinho added to Amazon.
“The team was brilliant. Today Liverpool didn’t look a team that is champion, European champion, world champion – that difference was not on the pitch.”
