Mourinho said he called Klipp “the best team loser” after the fight at Anfield
‘I said the best team lost and he disagreed but that’s his opinion,’ Mourinho said. ‘I think even a draw couldn’t leave us the best taste because it had us there to win
‘It wasn’t just about the big prospect it was the moment of the big prospect and the moment when they got into trouble at their worst and they were there to kill us but we missed it.
‘Usually you pay for matches at this level and I thought we would only pay with one point.
‘In the end we didn’t catch a single point, so it’s disappointing. But looking at the performance I am happy with the team, with the offer to go to the winning match.
‘I thought the boys were very good in such a tough game against such a good team and we got punished.’
