Jose Mourinho says Klopp shouldn’t have won The Best FIFA Men’s Coach award

Jurgen Klopp won back to back mens coach of the year award, who led Liverpool to their first Premier League title in 30 years, beat off competition from Marcelo Bielsa and Flick to scoop the prize at Thursday’s glitzy Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony held in Zurich.

Many analyst expected Bayern Munich boss Flick to come out on top given he navigate his side to five pieces of silverware last season, including the Champions League and the Two domestic trophy.

And a surprised Mourinho wanted his feud with Klopp to continue as both managers will meet in two days at Anfield by asking how the Klopp beat ‘poor’ Flick to the coach of the year award.

‘I think the only chance for Flick to win is that Bayern find two or three new competitions for him to win,’ the Tottenham head coach said.

‘So maybe if he wins seven titles in one season, maybe he wins the award.

‘I believe he only won Champions League, Bundesliga, Pokal, the name of their [domestic] cup, European Cup, German Super Cup… he only won five, and the biggest one of all.

‘Poor Flick! I think the only chance is for Bayern to find two or three more trophies to see if he can win it.’

Jurgen Klopp himself was surprised to win the award.

The Liverpool manager said: “I am shocked, I was just sitting here because I thought last year I won it and I was trying to show everyone respect. I wanted to show up wherever it was.

“It was easy this year because we’re here in Liverpool and I’m here with my players, like Trent, we’re socially distanced together in a room in the training ground.
