Klopp: Mourinho is nice

Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp had some kind words for Real Madrid counterpart Jose Mourinho in his Press conference.

The infamously demonstrative tactician is in the Spanish capital hoping for a reprise of the 2-1 victory he masterminded over Los Blancos in Germany a fortnight ago.

“Mourinho is nice,” said Klopp. “Very friendly even. And a very good friend.”

Borussia have had problems domestically this season but are a point clear of Real in Champions League Group C and on track to cause a shock by knocking Manchester City out.

“In the Champions League we have been very effective to date. And in the Bundesliga we are favourites in every game.”

Klopp had a novel idea for increasing his team's chances at the Bernabeu.

“I hope the goals are raised!”
