Henrikh Mkhitaryan compares Jose Mourinho to Jurgen Klopp
Henrikh Mkhitaryan discusses the differences and similarities between managers Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has described Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp as “two different personalities” after having played for both managers.
The Armenia international played under Klopp during his spell at Borussia Dortmund before his transfer to Manchester United from the German club last summer.
Mkhitaryan struggled to make an instant impact at Manchester United following his switch last summer but has recently found his feet under new boss Mourinho.
The playmaker has been in top form for the Red Devils in recent weeks and has been named man of the match on multiple occasions so far this season.
And the midfielder has lifted the lid on what Mourinho is like in comparison to Liverpool boss Klopp.
Speaking to BBC Football Focus, Mkhitaryan said: “Compared to Jose Mourinho they are two different personalities.
“Both of them are very friendly, both of them are very good in their job – two big managers. The way of their work is very different.”
Manchester United beat Watford 2-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday to keep their hopes of finishing in the top four on track.
The Red Devils are currently sixth in the Premier League table as they bid to secure Champions League qualification in Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.
