Klopp: Mourinho Is Nice, If You’re Not A Referee

share on:

Jurgen Klopp has poked some fun at Mourinho in good faith ahead of their match, insisting the Portuguese manager is nice unless you’re not a football official.

Klopp will face the embattled Mourinho at Stamford Bridge on Saturday with a new side, after joining from Dortmund.

However, Klopp has backed Mourinho to rise out of his current slump.

“I’m full of respect for his work. If you’re not a referee or a journalist he can be a nice guy,” he joked to reporters in Friday’s press conference.

“During the game we are both emotional but we are professionals, everything is fine between us.

“When I was in Germany Mourinho and I sometimes sent messages. I have respect for his work. He’s a nice guy.”
