Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had the best reply when he was asked by a reporter who the better player was between him and current Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho.

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham Hotspur's Jose Mourinho are both world-class mangers but when the former was asked who the better player is - the German gave a hilarious response.

As players both Klopp and Mourinho have comparatively little playing experience at the highest level. Mourinho played a few matches at Rio Ave and Belenenses in the 1980s while Klopp represented Mainz 300 times in his 11-year career.

As managers though both have excelled - with Mourinho winning the UEFA Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan in 2004 and 2010 respectively, while Klopp did the same with Liverpool last June.

They will go head-to-head in the Premier League this weekend as Spurs host Liverpool.

In the pre-match press conference though, a reporter posed the question of who was the better player.

"Does anyone know what position Mourinho played? Don't blame me if you don't know it," Klopp replied.

"Does anybody know? I think he was a goalkeeper...

"I want to know now. Come on, Google it. We have time."

After he was told there was no time, the former Dortmund boss retorted: "I have time!"

Mourinho turned out to be a midfielder in his playing days thanks to a Google search, as Klopp coyly said: "Sorry, Jose! He did play in goal in that charity game, though, so..."

Klopp started his career as a forward before rapidly moving back to become a defender, where he featured most often as a right-back.
