Klopp and his question about Mou’s career: “Was he a goalkeeper?”

first_imgJurgen Klopp did not hesitate to praise Jose Mourinho in the press conference before the match between Liverpool and Tottenham that will be played this Saturday at 18:30 in the new Spurs stadium although the German also got curious about the position that Mourinho occupied during his brief career as a soccer player leaving the anecdote of the appearance. “Was he a goalkeeper?” He asked.
