 Good relationship with players will only get you so far

 Jose Mourinho says success depends on far more than just positive relations between managers and players, as he said Liverpool and Tottenham have found “the perfect equation” after reaching the Champions League final.

Mourinho praised Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Spurs counterpart Mauricio Pochettino after they guided their teams to an all-English final in June's European club showpiece. 

Liverpool and Spurs both mounted astonishing comebacks this week to see off Barcelona and Ajax in their respective semi-finals, with much of the credit going to inspirational managers Klopp and Pochettino.
