Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan has insisted the media has an agenda against Jose Mourinho and agreed with the Tottenham boss’ claim that the reaction would be different had he behaved similarly to Jurgen Klopp on the touchline.
The Liverpool boss was extremely animated on the touchline for the majority of the second half in the match against Spurs on Wednesday.
Mourinho expressed his displeasure at Klopp’s behaviour and admitted that he told the German coach the best team lost that evening.
However, Jordan has now backed Mourinho’s claims, suggesting that he gets unfairly attacked by the media for his personality and for the success he has achieved in his career.
He also backed the Tottenham boss’ claim that his side deserved to win the game at Anfield on Wednesday.
Here’s what Jordan said on talkSPORT:
👎 "I do think there is an agenda."
✅ "Mourinho had the audacity to say he was the special one and then prove it."

There is no doubt a double-standard in the way the media treats Mourinho in comparison to his collogues. Some journalists and pundits do have an agenda against the Spurs boos, either because of his style of play or due to his perceived arrogance. Fairplay to Jordan for calling it out.
