Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has taken a dig at Manchester United and their manager Jose Mourinho, according to the Mirror.
Per-the-source, the German tactician was asked whether a lack of European football was an advantage to the Reds. Klopp dismissed the question and took his chance to take a shot at United and Mourinho.
“I cannot compare. For the last six, seven years I was always travelling through Europe,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“I never thought ‘this is too much’. If you want to be successful, you need European football. Watford didn’t travel last week. They have the same situation.
“We have to show we use the time for training over the whole season, not the first 10 games.
“Did you ask the same of Antonio Conte? They have the same situation.
“Maybe Manchester United have the same from January onwards?”
