Mumbai: After losing out to Real Madrid in last year’s champion’s league final, Klopp and team left no stone unturned and took the defeat as motivation.
Now winning the 2019 UEFA Champion’s league after a thunderous season and missing out winning the league to Manchester City by just a single point, Liverpool FC has earned both praises and respect from fans, players and coaches alike, including former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho predicts the Reds to make it to a third consecutive UCL final next year, stating that if it could be done by Real Madrid, it could also be done by Klopp’s men.
"Why not Liverpool? with this good team, with this good spirit, with this good empathy. The club, the manager, the players, the fans. Why not a third?" said Mourinho speaking on beIN sports.
Also speaking of the intense competition ahead in the Champions League next season, Mourinho dropped the names of clubs who may a good chance of winning the cup next year, including Juventus, Bayern, PSG, Manchester City and Spanish teams Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. The manager, however, ruled out Chelsea from the list.
