Jurgen Klopp has got Jose Mourinho the sack once again.

Ok, that’s not strictly true but there was simply no way back for the Portuguese after Klopp’s Liverpool beat them 3-1 last weekend at Anfield.

It left United 19 points behind their arch-rivals and was the final nail in the coffin for Mourinho.

But it’s not the first time Klopp has played a role in Mourinho being dismissed as manager.

In October 2015, Klopp registered his first Premier League win as Liverpool boss when he took his side to Stamford Bridge to beat an under-pressure Mourinho’s Chelsea 3-1.

The defeat left Chelsea in 15th and Mourinho was sacked just weeks later.

But even before that, back in 2013, Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund smashed Mourinho’s Real Madrid 4-1 at the Westfalenstadion in the Champions League semi-final, leaving the Spaniards trophyless that season.

Mourinho was sacked the following month.


So, you’d probably expect Mourinho is sick of the sight of Klopp right now.

However, that didn’t appear the case at Anfield.

‘Inside Anfield’ has shown footage inside the tunnel before, during and after the match and Liverpool fans noticed Mourinho’s behaviour.

And many Kopites are actually quite surprised at what they saw.


Mourinho can be seen greeting Klopp with a big handshake and hug. He’s then seen joking around with the Liverpool boss before having a chat with him and captain Virgil van Dijk about the weather.

Then, just before kick-off, he can be seen shaking hands of many Liverpool players - most notably Mohamed Salah - as they walked out onto the pitch.


Take a look:

It may be something rather small but it won plenty of Liverpool fans over.

The comments section on the YouTube video was full of fans paying their respect to Mourinho and insisting that he’s actually a really nice man.

Liverpool fans paying tribute to Mourinho and insisting he's a good guy - who’d have thought it!?

After the match, the United boss - who had just managed his final game for Man Utd - actually praised Liverpool after the 3-1 loss.

“They (Liverpool) are fast, intense, aggressive, physical, and they play at 100mph with and without the ball," he said, per the Liverpool Echo.

“I am still tired just to look at Robertson. He makes I think 100 metre sprints per minute. Absolutely incredible and these are qualities.”
