Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho takes swipe at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp over complaints

Liverpool: Klopp aims blunt dig at Neville after claims

Jurgen Klopp has been heavily critical of the fixture schedule during the current Premier League season as his side juggle their involvement in multiple competitions. However, Jose Mourinho has bitten back at the Liverpool manager, insisting life has always been this way for him.

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has taken another swipe at Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s complaints about the fixture schedule.

Klopp has been heavily critical of the way games have been jam-packed this term, leading to a number of injuries and short turnarounds between matches.

In his latest rant, the German directly criticised broadcasters BT, while he and Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have also taken aim at Premier League bigwigs in the past.

However, Mourinho has bitten back at Klopp, insisting he has had always had to deal with these issues.

“By the way, we played four matches in one week and nobody was crying or supporting us about it,” said the Portuguese.

“And now my colleagues, when do they play these matches?”

This is the second time Mourinho has directly addressed Klopp’s criticisms, last month advising the German that he had to “adapt” after the German urged for change in the programme.

“Klopp arrived by 2015,” Mourinho said in Novmember. “I arrived in 2004 so what he knows from 2015, I know since 2004.

“And nothing changes. We have to adapt to it and that’s the way it is.”

Tottenham and Liverpool, who sit first and second respectively, can  both welcome up to 2000 fans to matches once again thanks to changes from the government, though 10 clubs in the Premier League will still have to play behind closed doors.

And Mourinho took a similarly pragmatic approach to complaints that the new rules left some teams with an unfair advantage.

He added: ”I can understand their position but at the same time the situation is so difficult and so frustrating for everybody that I believe we have to accept all these things for the good of football, the good of people’s happiness and the perspective of ‘this is going to change for the better’.

“For me, we have to accept and adapt.”
