Champions League: What Mourinho said about Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool 3-0 defeat to Barca
Posted by badgeemmybxt

Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that he was not afforded the support he needed to succeed at Manchester United.

The Portuguese also suggested that the likes of Manchester City's Pep Guardiola and Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp have enjoyed maximum backing from their club side.

Mourinho's two-and-a-half year tenure at Old Trafford saw United lift both the Carabao Cup and Europa.

He was dismissed following United's 3-1 loss at Liverpool last December amid a poor run of Premier League results.

The former Chelsea boss was allowed to make some big-money moves while in charge at United.

He made Paul Pogba the most expensive player in the world and lured Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford over the Etihad Stadium with a mega-money package.

Regardless of this though, the former Real Madrid manager feels the more sustained backing Guardiola and Klopp have enjoyed is much clearer.

"I would love to go to a club and be in conditions to do what Jurgen and Pep did," Mourinho told beIN Sports , while working as a pundit covering the Champions League semi-final between Barcelona and Liverpool.

"If you look at the [Liverpool] team that started the game, how many of them were there when Jurgen arrived? A couple.

"And when Pep was not happy with the full-backs he had [at City in 2016-17] and in the [next] summer bought four [three] full-backs that he liked.

"When he bought one goalkeeper like Claudio Bravo and was not happy with Claudio Bravo, the next season he bought Ederson.

"When Jurgen is in the club and wins absolutely nothing for three-and-a-half years and he still has the trust, still has the confidence, still has the conditions to try to keep going and going.

"Probably this season they have a big chance to do it - the first time that they win a trophy.

"In my next job I will not be starting a conversation without knowing exactly what the club wants and what the club has to give in terms of structure and the club objectives."
