Champions League defeat would be hard for Klopp, says Mourinho

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says a third Champions League defeat for Jurgen Klopp would be ‘really hard.’

Klopp will be leading his side for the Champions League finals against Tottenham and according to Mourinho, the former Borussia Dortmund boss would be surrounded by huge pressure.

"If Jurgen wins it's an incredible achievement for him. If Jurgen doesn't win, you know....to lose three Champions League finals...phew...that has to be really, really hard,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"But he is a very positive guy, I'm sure he's just thinking about winning. Being a manager, and understanding what it means for a manager to play a Champions League final, there is always a negative side of it and the negative side is that one team will lose and one manager will lose."

Klopp who has lost six of his seven finals as a manager lost Champions League final to Real Madrid last June, five years after his Borussia Dortmund side suffered the same fate against rivals Bayern Munich.
