José Mourinho believes Liverpool’s extraordinary comeback against Barcelona at Anfield on Tuesday night was down to manager to Jürgen Klopp, praising the German’s ‘heart and soul’.

Liverpool, who needed a 4-0 win to progress to the Champions League final in Madrid achieved just that, with Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum both earning a brace as another memorable night in Merseyside played out.

And Mourinho, in his role as a beIN Sports pundit, believes rather than tactics, Liverpool’s win was down to Klopp’s fighting spirit, saying: “I didn’t expect it, I said impossible is nothing, I said if it’s possible, Anfield is one of the places to make the impossible be possible.”

“I have to say, this remontada (comeback) has one name: Jürgen. I think this was not about tactics or philosophy, but heart and soul and empathy that he created with this group of players.”

“They had the risk of finishing a fantastic season without anything to celebrate, and now they are one step from being European champions. I think Jürgen deserves it, you know. The work they are doing in Liverpool is fantastic.”

“But I think this is about him, this is a reflection of his personality, don’t give up, a fighting spirit, every playing giving everything. He’s not crying because he’s missing a player, he’s not crying because they are playing 50 or 60 matches per season. Other coaches in other leagues they are crying, saying their players are playing too many matches when they play 30 or 35 matches,” Mourinho added.

“Everything I think today is about Jürgen’s mentality. I just hope that Jurgen wins the Champions League finally. Because he lost already two Champions League finals and also a Europa League final. I think he deserves to make it happen. Because the work is fantastic.”
