We know. We really understand that Jose Mourinho isn’t a name that Liverpool fans want to hear. Especially on the eve of beating Barcelona 4-0 at home. However, he has something to say that will cheer you up further. If you’re not already chuffed to the ears.
Jose Mourinho is on pundit duty for BeIN sports these days. After every set of fixtures, you hear him talk about the results or the upcoming games. He only yesterday called Barcelona defender U-14 boys. Which is not that far from the truth but it does mean we can go on read his comments for entertainment’s sake at least.
Liverpool went down 3-0 at the Nou Camp in the first leg of the semi-final. In fact, even the most optimistic fans werenn’t all that optimistic of making it to the final. Salah and Firmino were out injured and in their place started the likes of Divock Origi. Yesterday, only a squad player, Origi has now written his name in Liverpool’s history books. The same can be said about Dutchman Wijnaldum.
“The atmosphere is very difficult to cope with, especially when Liverpool attacks to that end. It’s the goal where they love to finish matches and where they love to finish matches second half.”

So we beat Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to qualify for the final. The players certainly gave their all but the stadium also played it’s part. Jose knows exactly what that means.
