Jurgen Klopp responds to Jose Mourinho’s Liverpool comments

The Liverpool manager isn't interested in Jose Mourinho's comments on his Reds players

Jurgen Klopp has played down the signifance of Jose Mourinho’s comments following Manchester United’s draw with Liverpool on Monday night.

The Reds were limited to just three shots in target as David De Gea pulled off two world-class saves to deny Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho.

Don’t bother me with these things. I am not a single per cent interested

Liverpool had scored nine times in their two previous Premier League fixtures at Anfield before the visit of the Red Devils.

Mourinho, though, accused the media of making Liverpool the “last wonder of the world” after their impressive start to the season under Klopp.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund manager refused to respond to Mourinho’s remarks ahead of Saturday’s home clash against West Brom.

“I am not interested,” Klopp is quoted as saying by The Liverpool Echo.

“I thought the game was over, and if we do not have extra time then why should I talk about it?!

“For me, it is always like this. What I don’t like too much in the world of media is this; you write what you hear, and not what you see.

“I could say what I want, obviously, and you would write it. And a few people would think ‘hmmm, maybe he’s right’ or ‘hmmm maybe he’s wrong’, whatever.

“But I don’t care what people say after the game. I saw the game already, I know what I have to learn from it and all that.

“If you want to write what you saw, then do it. And if it is the same as what other people say, then so be it. But don’t bother me with these things. I am not a single per cent interested.

“I learned pretty early in my career that you cannot win the game after it has finished. We have a point and it felt positive, because it is one more than before the game.

“It was a good experience for us, we weren’t perfect in the game but that’s all. Nothing else.”

Liverpool are in fourth place in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Manchester City after eight games.

The Reds are unbeaten in their last six top-flight games following victories over defending champions Leicester City and top-four rivals Chelsea.
