Jurgen Klopp has refused to take dig at Mourinho after the United boss claimed both Chelsea and Liverpool will find it difficult this season.

Last week, United boss said Liverpool and Chelsea would find it very hard as they also have to deal with European football.

“I’m not interested in what Jose Mourinho says,” Klopp said.

“Why should I talk about Manchester United? Jose is talking about us, yes. We had a season of what Man United had the year before. I don’t know if anybody asked us how it felt.

“The Europa League was hard,” he continued.

“Yes, Chelsea will feel also the difference, they played something like 13 players last season. But it’s also not my problem if they use only 11, well done. I do not want to be part of this, I am not interested.”

Klopp further said Liverpool will not be pushed into making signings just for the sake of it.

“There’s a feeling that the transfer window is more interesting than the league,” Klopp said.

“People think: ‘Oh we are winning already.’ Unfortunately after the transfer window you have to carry on playing. That’s what I am most interested in. It doesn’t mean we don’t want to bring players in. We’ve always brought players in. Wonderful players. But it was not like I don’t know Ibrahimovic, Lukaku and others. Does that mean we can’t do it? I have no idea. We will see.

“We want to do the right thing and not calm the people down with a big signing and everyone will think now you have to [win the Premier league], then its: ‘Oh, obviously you can’t.”
