Arsene Wenger & Jose Mourinho's brilliant punditry for the Champions League final

Jose Mourinho & Arsene Wenger were brilliant on beIN Sports

The 2019 Champions League final was certainly not the most memorable.

In fact, unless you are affiliated with Liverpool, you will probably forget all about it in a matter of days.

Jurgen Klopp's side emerged victorious over Tottenham in Madrid, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

It was a game bereft of chances, with Liverpool sitting deep for much of the time and Tottenham unable to put together meaningful attempts on goal.

Liverpool's first-minute penalty certainly didn't help matters, neither did the scorching Spanish heat.

But one element of brilliance to emerge from the game was the punditry of legendary duo Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger for beIN Sports.

The two had their differences as managers, but worked perfectly together as pundits.
