    ON THE EXCHANGE WITH KLOPP

    "I told him the best team lost.

    "He disagreed but that's his opinion.

    "By the way if I behave the same way on the touchline like he does on the, I have no chance to stay there, I'm off one minute after."

    MOURINHO SPEAKS 

    These are the full time thoughts of Jose Mourinho: 

    "So close of winning, not so close of [getting] a draw. 

    "So close of winning, but we missed the chances. 

    "We had the chances, we had the game under control. 

    "A draw, would be a bad result in relation to the performance so you can imagine how we feel with the defeat.

    "But [a] very good performance, of course with some mistakes [and] some things to improve but a great performance and a very very unfair result."
