Mourinho aims dig at Pochettino & Klopp ahead of Champions League final

The Argentine has earned respect for the progress Tottenham have made but his former Manchester United rival feels he should have won a trophy

Jose Mourinho has called out Mauricio Pochettino for his lack of silverware, even though he says he admires the Tottenham manager.

The Argentine boss has not won any trophies with the three clubs he has coached, coming closest to tasting success in the 2015 League Cup when Spurs lost to Chelsea in the final.

Although the London side's challenge for the Premier League title fell by the wayside, they can still be crowned kings of Europe as they gear up for a Champions League final against Liverpool this term.

Pochettino has been the subject of special praise for the progress Tottenham have made despite not signing new players in the last two transfer windows.

He was tipped as a potential replacement for Mourinho following his dismissal from Manchester United until the club hired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a three-year deal, while Real Madrid were said to be considering him before they brought Zinedine Zidane back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

And while Mourinho is a fan of Pochettino's work, he believes Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has the advantage heading into the June 1 clash in Madrid, as the German is more experienced in finals.
