Jose Mourinho Says Liverpool Aren’t Last Wonder of the World

Jose Mourinho Says Liverpool Aren’t Last Wonder of the World

Jose Mourinho insists Liverpool are not the last wonder of the world like the media say they are.

The Manchester United spoke post-match after leading his side to a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Anfield.

He may face criticisms for the defensive style of football United played, but they gained the point that they came for after being written off slightly before the game.

Liverpool went into the match as favourites after taking 16 points from their first seven games, getting some big results away at both Arsenal and Chelsea.

But Mourinho doesn’t appear to agree with the rave reviews Jurgen Klopp’s men have been getting so far this season.

And he couldn’t resist having a dig at Liverpool in his post-match interview.

Asked about United’s low possession stats on the night, Mourinho told Sky Sports: “That was the game that we planned.

“We don’t want to control the game by having the ball all the time. We know that they wanted to press our first phase of the building up.

“We know that all the passes between Bailly and Smalling in the direction of Fellaini and Herrera would be passes that they want to press with these two number eights they play.

“We know that transition when they lose the ball is really strong and high so we adapt to the situation.

“We knew that it would be very difficult for them to score a goal. What we always thought was that we’d score a goal to win the match which we tried. We tried to start really strong in both halves.

“But they’re a good team. They are not the last wonder of the world like you say they are. But they are a very good team so we had to adapt to that.”

Do you agree with Mourinho? Have Liverpool been overrated?
