Klopp Responds To Jose Mourinho’s Complaints

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has responded to Jose Mourinho’s complaints that the Manchester United manager is treated less favourably than the German by officials during matches, saying he has improved since he was younger.

Jurgen Klopp said all managers “struggle” to control their emotions, after Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho said he was being treated differently to his rivals.

Klopp apologised after shouting in fourth official Neil Swarbrick’s face during Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea.
Mourinho said he was told he would be sent to the stand if he did not sit down during Wednesday’s visit of Hull.

“It is quite an emotional game,” said Klopp.

“To switch off emotions is not simple. We struggle. Not only myself and Jose, but [Arsenal manager] Arsene Wenger and a lot of others.”

Klopp said Swarbrick responded to his apology by saying: “No problem, I like your passion.”

Klopp said: “Maybe I was lucky with what the fourth official said because I have never heard something like this before. There are different ways to handle the situation.

“We are all different; sometimes we get a fine, sometimes not. It’s not what we want to do, nor is it a tactic.”
