We’ve seen over the years that Jurgen Klopp is very effective at getting under the skin of opposing managers on the touchline, so Jose Mourinho always had the potential to create a scene.

Jose Mourinho has since come out to give his version of events, and he’s not letting this one go quietly:
Mourinho: “I told Klopp the best team lost. He disagreed. By the way, if I behaved like him on the touchline – it would be very different.”

Klopp is usually seen as the cheery, smiling guy in his press conferences but he’s much more vocal on the touchline, so this rivalry could intensify if Spurs stay relevant and Mourinho sticks around.
