Jose Mourinho has questioned the choice of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as FIFA’s Best Coach, positing Bayern Munich boss, Hansi Flick deserved to win the award.
On Thursday, FIFA awarded Klopp as the Best Coach, retaining the award which he also won in 2019.
However, not a few have argued that Flick was the most deserving candidate for the accolade.
Last season, Flick had managed to win Bundesliga, Champions League, DFB-pokal with Bayern Munich. The side also won UEFA Super Cup and DFL Super Cup in 2020.
“I think the only chance for Flick to win is that Bayern finds two or three more new competitions to win it. So maybe if he wins seven titles in one season maybe he wins the award, because I believe he only won the Champions League, Bundesliga, Pokal, European Super Cup, German Super Cup – he only won five and the biggest one of all,” Goal.com quoted Mourinho as saying.
“So I think poor Flick the only chance is for Bayern to try and find two or three more trophies to see if he can win it,” he added.
Earlier this week, Mourinho’s Spurs side suffered a 2-1 defeat against Liverpool which saw them relinquish top spot to the Reds.
They will hope to bounce back when they face Leicester City on Sunday.
