José Mourinho pours his heart over Steven Gerrard
THIS. IS. BEAUTIFUL.
“Liverpool is a giant club and if they want to do that (guard of honour), obviously my players will accept that with the same respect.”
“But speaking about Liverpool and them honouring of champions, it is my time to honour a champion, Steven Gerrard and to say that it is because of opponents like him that I am the manager I am.”
"In England he is my dear enemy, he made me a better manager.”
"I lost, won, drew against him, I was happy and sad in games against him. I’m very sad this is last time I play against him.
"I tried to bring him to Chelsea, I tried to bring him to Inter, I tried to bring him to Real Madrid but he was always with the enemy.”
“I want to honour him and I hope Stamford Bridge has the same feeling.”
“Who knows I play against Steven as a Liverpool manager someday.“
