I did see red if I behave the way Klopp did on the touchline - Jose Mourinho

I did see red if I behave the way Klopp did on the touchline - Jose Mourinho

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho thinks Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp was treated differently during the game at Anfield last night.

Liverpool won the game by two goals to one '2-1' thanks to a 90-minute headed goal by Bobby Firmino which has now secure Liverpool a place at the top of the table leading Spurs by 3 points.

During the encounter last night, Jose Mourinho thinks Klopp and his crew were putting much pressure on the officials which is why he even had to take out Lo Celso earlier in the second half so the referee won't be pressured to give him a red card because he was already on a yellow.

Speaking with BBC after the game, Mourinho thinks he would have been sent off if he was the one behaving like that on the touchline but overall, he is satisfied with the way his players handled the game.

"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." Mourinho said after the game.

"We deserved to win. I have to be disappointed,' the former Manchester United added

"Of course they had more of the ball but when we had it, we knew how to hurt them but we have to score - the second, third goal, we have to score it to kill the game.

"They had the ball but the game was under control. In matches like these where you don't have 10 chances, just three or four, you have to score three and kill it - which we didn't.

"The draw will probably be a fair result but to lose it is really, really unfair. But that's football.

"We have to score. Period. Especially in those moments as they were suffering every time we recovered the ball, they were in trouble. So, it was a moment to hurt, a moment to kill it and we didn't.

"In the end, the destiny decided for them to win it. Also in a very strange way for me."
