Phil Thompson reacts at Mourinhos comments about Liverpool

first_imgLiverpool legend Phil Thompson says Jose Mourinho’s claims that his former club are trying to buy the Premier League title are “outrageous”.During the summer transfer window, Liverpool spent £177million – shelling out £67m on Roma stopper Alisson, in addition to adding Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri to their ranks.Mourinho said: “When I read sometimes and watch sometimes, it looks like we finished sixth or seventh (last season) and everybody did better than us. We finished second.“Liverpool are trying to win the title with their amazing investment. Chelsea have a fantastic squad, Manchester City have a fantastic squad too, Tottenham made an incredible investment by keeping their players, that’s the best investment you can make.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.When asked if Liverpool should be offended by Mourinho’s suggestion that Liverpool had sought to buy the title this summer, Thompson said on Soccer Saturday: “Pot and kettle? Oh my goodness.“You always buy what you can afford and it’s net spend at the end of the day. Our net spend compared to United’s net spend is massively different.“How can he say that? Is he just trying to wind people up because this is Jose? Liverpool trying to buy the title? Oh my goodness, I can accept that from some other clubs and managers, but not from Jose Mourinho.“Just because we’ve spent some money this summer? It was absolutely outrageous comments coming from Mourinho, whose bought titles everywhere he’s gone.”last_img
