Jose Mourinho hasn’t taken long to start taking digs at his closest rivals after making comments about Jürgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger.

Manchester United have just secured the signing of Paul Pogba from Juventus for £89 million, according to BBC Sport. There is no doubting the quality of the player but to argue that any person in the world is worth nearly 90 million pounds is idiotic.

This sentiment was reflected when both Arsene Wenger and Jürgen Klopp publicly criticized the transfer.

“The Pogba transfer fee? It is completely crazy if you cannot afford to pay it,” Wenger told the Daily Mail.

“If you can afford to pay it you can justify it. But it is completely crazy if you compare it to normal life. That is for sure.”

However, Mourinho clearly doesn’t appreciate the comments and has responded to his critics and despite not naming anyone it’s pretty obvious he is directing his response to Klopp and Wenger.

“I know the discussion, I understand that, sometimes in football, things happen and the club breaks the record, but this is only possible at clubs like Man United,” Mourinho told MUTV.

“When I heard some of the comments and heard some of the managers criticising that, I don’t think they ever have this problem because, to have this problem, you need to be at one of the top clubs in the world. So at Man United it can happen. “

Mourinho seems a little bit touchy, doesn’t he? Paranoia could be a symptom of his disastrous failure at Chelsea last season after leaving the club in a relegation battle.

Just like you, I am a hugely passionate Liverpool supporter. I started Rousing the Kop in January 2015 and since then it has grown tremendously and has even been nominated as 'Best New Football Blog' in the Football Blogging Awards.


  1. Wenger always saw thru the malevolence of Mourinho but was never backed by any other club other than his own. But we have to now come out and attack this repellent parasite in the game. The reason he hates the likes of Klopp and Wenger and Guardiola is because they achieve success playing beautiful football, something he has NEVER done. Boring football from a chequebook manager, The guy is scum!

  2. The pressure on him is immense and after his recent spectacular implosion at Chelsea coupled with the arrival of klopp conte and pep, he knows success won’t be as easy as it was in the past.

    He always behaves this way when he isn’t too sure of himself. We have seen it since 2007.
