Klopp is preparing to face Mourinho's Real Madrid in their Champions League semifinal tie.
"You always have to be yourself and I do not try to imitate anyone. I am Jürgen Klopp. I do not want to be Mourinho, Guardiola or Heynckes. Everyone has their way of being and I am as I am.
"I am a person who also has his mistakes, he is wrong a lot, but I have the good fortune to balance this because the coach is always related to team performance. And if the team does well, the coach is always seen in a good light.
"This is what happens to me. But ultimately, whatever you do, whoever wins, whatever we say, I am clear, I'll always be the same: Jürgen Klopp. I do not imitate anyone."
