Klopp raps Mourinho: In 125 years Liverpool couldn't sit back and 'wait'

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp took a fresh dig at Manchester United rival Jose Mourinho last night.

Mourinho blamed Klopp's tactics for the drab 0-0 draw on Saturday.

Klopp said: "It is not important what I feel – you saw what we did. We kept them busy. We came through more often than they wanted. Did we score – no.

"So they made everything right because they got the point and we obviously didn't because we don't have the win. We can take it.

"If you want to judge our two match plans then do it. I have no time for it. I don't even think about it.

"Most things they did was completely clear. Why should I talk about them sitting back before the game? That's not my job.

"Jose obviously did what he thinks is right, or what he wants to do, and that is ok. It doesn't make life easier for us but I can't moan and say 'Come on, open up a little bit'. That's not how it is.

"They want to win the league and I am sure we couldn't play like this in Liverpool after 125 years without the title. We cannot sit back and say 'Let's wait' – that is not possible."
