A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning
Mourinho has yet again gone on about Liverpool’s absence of European football being a massive advantage in the title race.
He said: “When we speak about the Champions League and the title race, we have to speak about Liverpool.
“Because Liverpool, since the beginning of the season, have one match every week. They rest, they prepare, they recover, they prepare, they play, they have a day off. This is a big, big, advantage.”
According to the Daily Mirror, Mourinho also made an attack on Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and his ability to win penalties.
He said: “You know the kings of penalties, you know where they are – and they’re not here.”
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has been talking about the club financially and believes that the club will soon climb the Deloitte money list from 12th position.
He’s quoted in the Liverpool Echo, saying: “You have to take a reasonable amount of comfort from the fact that we know why we are 12th. We are not playing European football and that’s at the heart of it. We have a stadium that doesn’t allow us the capacity that our demands dictate.
“So we know why, and we are doing all we can to address that. We are doing what we can in terms of European football by addressing it on the pitch and we are all hoping we can get back in the Champions League.”
He’s quoted saying: “Next season they could be playing in the Champions League and I’m really keen to be a part of that.”
