Jose Mourinho was convinced players backed him after a team meeting on Friday and that seemed well-founded when Ramires scored. But Liverpool hit back with two superb goals from Coutinho and a strike from substitute Christian Benteke.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said “I feel for him. He is a great coach. I don’t think anyone in this room doubts he is one of the best in the world. Things like this happen. I had a similar situation at Dortmund last year. The good thing was no one in the club was in doubt of my situation. I feel for him of course, but it’s work.”
