Jose Mourinho has hailed Liverpool for putting their “trust” in Jurgen Klopp despite a similarly mixed start at Anfield to his own in north London with Spurs.
Liverpool have finally won the Premier League after a 30 year wait, securing the title with seven league fixtures left to play.
And Mourinho sent his congratulations to Klopp, his players and the club for their achievement, claiming that “trust” and patience was all important to their success.
“Well I think first of all congratulations, it’s obvious, to everyone connected with Liverpool football club, not just the coaches, the players, but everybody at the club and every fan around the world,” said Mourinho in his pre-match press conference.

“Many congratulations, it’s time for them to enjoy after so long. So really, really, honestly, many, many congratulations and of course the numbers don’t let you lie. Of course they deserve it.
“For a long, long time, since I was trying to be a pundit, that I told already in November I think that they were going to be champions.
“I think what they did is what you have to do, which is when you trust a manager you trust.
“It doesn’t matter how you do in your first season, doesn’t matter how you do in your second season, you keep working because you believe in him. So you keep working together.
“So if the results in the first season are not good, you improve. If the results in the second season are not good, you keep improving. And you go to the third season, and the fourth.
“And of course when the manager is good, and when the structure behind is good, and when they manage to do a collective work like they did, the results arrive.
“So I think it’s a great example for people that think in football everything is done in one week, in one month, or in one year. So I double my compliments to them exactly because of the profile, and the way that they accepted that it was a project. Well done.”
