When asked about Mourinho's assertion after Liverpool's win at, Klopp replied: "What? What did he say? Now I’m interested."

After having Mourinho's comments explained further, Klopp said: "He’s right, that’s right. If he is speaking about me. Probably there are a few more managers in the league but you thought it was about me – no problem.

"He is right absolutely. He is probably the most successful manager in the [Premier League] in that moment. I have no problem with that.

"I don’t watch Jose Mourinho press conferences - should I? I will start doing that. I cannot say anything about that.

"[I have] no clue what you are talking about to be 100 per cent honest. If he said I didn’t win anything outside Germany then he’s right - that’s easy to see."
