Published

on

 

Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho has issued out warning to Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp ahead of both teams’ clash in the Premier League fixture on Sunday evening at Anfield.

Mourinho has warned Klopp that real success can only be achieved when a club win trophies not matches.

The Portuguese gaffer has won both the Carabao Cup and Europa League trophy with United since taking over in 2016.

“I think trophies matter,” Mourinho was quoted by EPSN as saying ahead of Liverpool’s clash.

“It matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy.

“I think sometimes to just say it is not very intelligent but when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one your potential and your desire.

“To say we want to win, everyone can say that but another thing is to say the potential in a way you have but I think Jurgen said already they want to win the Premier League, that is their objective.”

Klopp has not won any trophy with Liverpool since taking over in 2015 from Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.

The 51-year-old has lost the Caraboa Cup and the Europa League finals as well as the Champions League.

Klopp’s men are currently on top of the English topflight league table with 42 points from 16 games, while Mourinho’s side are sixth place with 26 points from the same number of games.

“Jose Mourinho Ruined My Real Madrid Career” – Kaka

Published

The Brazilian failed to hold down a regular spot in the Blancos starting XI, with the Portuguese preferring Mesut Ozil to him in the lineup.

Former Brazil star Kaka claims that Jose Mourinho is partly responsible for his disappointing spell at Real Madrid.

The Ballon d’Or winner joined Madrid from AC Milan in 2009, becoming the second most expensive player ever, but saw injury problems blight his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

When he regained fitness, Mourinho had taken over as head coach and often left Kaka out of the starting XI.

Kaka believes a combination of the two factors ruined his chance of becoming a star for Real, with Mourinho preferring Mesut Ozil to him in attacking midfield.

“The problem in Madrid was continuity,” Kaka told SporTV. “First, it was because of the injuries. The first year I had a hip problem. I pushed to reach the World Cup and then I had an adductor injury.

“After the Cup I have a knee operation and I’m out for six months. And when I return I have Mourinho. My problem in Madrid was continuity.

“First for the physical issue and then for the choice of the coach. I spent three years trying to convince Mourinho that he could give me opportunities. But it was his choice, it was beyond my reach.”

Despite the disagreements between the two during their time in Madrid, Kaka says that he has forgiven Mourinho and understands why he left him out of the lineup.

“There is no problem between us.

“I was in Manchester for a sponsorship gig and I stayed at the hotel where Mourinho lived and we talked for two hours.

“At some point we had a misunderstanding because I believed that I had to play and he believed that I did not. But they were respectful disagreements.

“I never rebelled and told him ‘I’m leaving here’, nor did I go before the press to complain. I told him: ‘It’s your choice, but I think you could have other options because I think I should have a chance to play. Now, you must choose.’

“He had no arguments. He told me he was not going to play because the position was for Ozil. I thought I could contribute.

“Mourinho is really what you see in the cameras. He has his explosive moments, but he’s a very smart guy. What people see at press conferences is all prepared and planned and knows exactly what they are going to say. The problem I had with him was because of his choices. I thought he was wrong. But the team worked. We won a ;eague and we reached the Champions League semi-finals.”
