Mourinho was analysing this year’s showpiece as a pundit on beIN SPORTS alongside former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, and was full of praise for Klopp’s side after sealing the club’s sixth European Cup.
Mourinho said: ‘With Real Madrid it’s three in a row. Why can’t Liverpool do three finals in a row?

He says ’empathy’ between players and manager has been a component of Liverpool’s success
‘Why Liverpool, with this good team, with this good spirit, with this good empathy. The club, the manager, the players, the fans. Why not a third?’
However, the 56-year-old did have some reservations about the difficulty of the challenge facing Liverpool next season.
He said: ‘I was writing here the teams that want to win the Champions League. Juventus, Bayern (Munich), PSG, Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid. You have seven or eight teams.’
Liverpool claimed the European Cup for a sixth time at the Wanda Metropolitano thanks to goals by Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.
