Jose Mourinho Silences Vincent Kompany With Statement About Liverpool Vs Man City

Jose Mourinho brilliantly silenced Vincent Kompany with one of his trademark blunt statements in the build-up to Liverpool vs Man City yesterday.

Liverpool won Sunday's Anfield showdown 3-1 and have gone nine points clear of champions City, who dropped to fourth after this weekend.

Before the game, former City captain Kompany was explaining that he feels the title would not be won or lost in November despite the potential for Liverpool to open up an eight-point lead over Leicester and Chelsea.

But former United boss Mourinho disagreed with Kompany and said that he had even handed City some of their titles over the years, specifically when he beat Liverpool as Chelsea manager in 2014.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Kompany said: "In this case, if you look at the last decade or so, there have been numerous times where Liverpool were top of the league and there were numerous times where City were behind as well..."

Mourinho was quick to fire back with: "But City was the best team!

"When I gave you the title, you never told me thank you. When I gave you the title by winning here and you didn't even call me to say thank you, you were the best team."

Chelsea's 2-0 victory at Anfield in 2014 blew the title race wide open again and City went on to pip Liverpool that year.

Mourinho added: "They were not the best, they were there, they were almost there, but you were the best team, in this moment I don't think there is that difference in power.

"Even in terms of statures, if statures play something. You are the champions of England but they are the champions of Europe."

Mourinho went on to say that Jurgen Klopp's side have a winning mentality and praised them as European champions.

The former Man Utd boss said: "They know how to win, they know how to cope with the pressure, so for me, the game today is very, very important.

"Because if the distances are three points or six points, it is still very open, but if the difference is nine points, goodbye."

Liverpool punished of City's makeshift back line an continued their brilliant start to the season, making it 11 wins from their opening 12 Premier League games.
