Mourinho: Klopp And I Are The Same, We Like To Win

 

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says he is looking forward to Sunday's Premier League clash against Liverpool.

 

Mourinho who will be hoping Manchester United win their tenth consecutive game admitted that his entire squad are well prepared for the rivalry which will be rekindled at Old Trafford.

 

"No-one is nervous. Everybody wants the game. I am sure Jurgen is the same," Mourinho began during his pre-match conference on Friday.

 

"It's three points, plus the emotional side of it. Fans and players here for a long time understand the feeling better than I do. I am here for a few months. 

 

"It's a good rivalry. I always feel it is very good for the football clubs. But no more than three points."

 

Mourinho also hinted that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and defender Marcos Rojo could return for the fixture.

 

 "I think so," he replied when asked about their availiability for the game.

 

"I cannot confirm because there are two days left but they are closer to being ready than not ready."

 

The Portuguese manager was also pleased with his side's results lately.

 

The Old Trafford side are currently on a nine game winning streak.

 

"Results are better. I have changed a lot of things. I had less time before. Now I have a little bit more," Mourinho added while praising his Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp.

 

"I just think we like to win. Everyone has his own personality, style and coaching and leading. Probably we have some similarities and other characteristics that make us different.

 

"He wants to play the game as much as I want, I am not sure if he is so calm as I am. It is one more big match."

 

Liverpool are currently second in the league table, five points ahead of hosts Manchester United heading into this fixture.
