Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers congratulated him after the game for his side’s 2-0 victory at Anfield.
The Blues were heavily criticised for their performance at the weekend, which saw them sit back and defend for most of the game, and then hit Liverpool hard on the counter, which they did and eventually lead them to winning the game and putting themselves back in the title picture.
After the game Rodgers wasn’t so nice to Mourinho and his approach as he stated they parked two buses in front of their own goal, but Mourinho has now revealed that after the match had finished, Rodgers came to him and congratulated his side’s effort.
“You know pundits are pundits and I don’t want to comment a lot,” Mourinho said.
“Brendan is a manager and is somebody that I consider my friend. I met him a long time ago when he was a very young coach coaching kids.
“Of course, I know his words after the match but I also know his words today and today he told me congratulations for a great victory and a great performance.
“Especially because he’s somebody I consider a friend and I like, I prefer to forget the words after the match and I keep the words of today.
“He’s an intelligent guy, I believe that after the match he watched the match on video and I think now he understood what happened.”
