Mourinho mocks Klopp transfer spending spree

Mourinho mocks Klopp transfer spending spree

At the time, Klopp said he would be uneasy at spending such an amount, prompting Mourinho to say: "I think if you have the money, if you invest well, is better than to have it in the bank, because the interest is very low".

"He is a top player, but we are not interested in him". "He needs more minutes and he needs to regain his principles in terms of playing without the ball".

The Spaniard clinched the Premier League and League Cup titles with City last season and has now penned a deal that extends his stay at the Etihad Stadium until 2021.

Having initially joined City from Valencia in the summer of 2010, the World Cup victor will have completed 10 seasons in sky blue by the time of its expiration.

With midfield proving a problem for Klopp at the end of last season due to numerous injuries and a shortage of options, this season could see him suffer a reversal of fortunes in the centre of his Liverpool team.

The Spain global has been an integral part of City's success, scoring 61 goals and providing 115 assists in 346 appearances to help the club win three league titles, an FA Cup, and three League Cups since his arrival in 2010.

"If we are not able to be consistent and be there to win the title. football trainers are always in a unsafe position".

Mane and Salah picked up where they left off last season and tore the Sky Blues defence to shreds.

"When I finish my contract with Manchester City, I will be 34 years old".

It all underlines the challenge for City when it comes to reinforcing the position.

"It is what it is; I learned that when I was a little boy in Barcelona, you don't find excuses, you just play", Guardiola added when asked about City's preparations with their regular starters.

Perhaps City's eyes are elsewhere, but there is no guarantee that anyone they bring in will be able to slot into the system quite as seamlessly as Fernandinho.

The 61st-minute introduction of the forward turned the friendly significantly in favour of Liverpool, who had previously looked sluggish against a youthful City side.
