Jurgen Klopp See Through Jose Mourinho's Attempts At 'Mind-Games'

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho appears to have started the "mind games" against Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp just over two weeks before the start of the new Premier League season.

This summer, Guinea midfielder Naby Keita has arrived from RB Leipzig for about £50m, Brazil midfielder Fabinho has joined from Monaco in a deal that could be worth more than £40m, and Switzerland winger Xherdan Shaqiri has come in from Stoke for £13m. "Because the interest rates are very low", Mourinho said (via Sky Sports).

Speaking after United's penalty shoot-out win over AC Milan in the International Champions Cup, the Portuguese said: "Maybe this season, finally, you [the media] demand that they win".

Klopp sensationally mocked Mourinho, Following Manchester United's purchase of Paul Pogba, claiming he would leave football before overseeing fortunes spent in the transfer market.

It has been an extremely busy transfer window for Liverpool and it is unclear at this stage whether or not boss Jurgen Klopp has finished his spending spree.

The retired Scottish defender Steve Nicol, who won four League Championships, three FA Cups and a European Cup with the Premier League outfit, has perhaps given a jarring comment over Daniel Sturridge's future and has revealed the reason why the Englishman is staying at Liverpool.

I have no problem with what Jose Mourinho is saying, it is a free world and he can say whatever he wants. We are ambitious, we never said something different, we have to deliver and we know that.

'Improvement means playing better football, being more consistent and entertaining the crowd in a very specific way - We are Liverpool and we stand for football.

But he insists that signing Alisson was too good an opportunity to miss, especially with other keepers priced even higher.

Manchester United fan Harry pointed out the preferential treatment meted out to Klopp and the way the media negatively reacts to everything from Mourinho. In this situation we didn't get it and, if you write this, people will say I am weak or a bad loser or a whiner. That happened last year, probably the year before as well, and now we are in the situation where we want to make the next step.
