United’s historic 3-1 second leg win over the French giants at Parc des Princes put Solskjaer’s men in the record books.

But Mourinho, who was axed by the club in December, was more impressed by Jurgen Klopp’s side.

He told Russia Today: “I was looking at Liverpool, they were on their way down in the Premier League and they were losing lots of points.

“And they come with for sure the best performance of the season in the Champions League. For sure.”

“So they managed to surprise me. I don’t think they surprised themselves because of course, they are the first ones to believe.

“But to surprise lots of people with that strong performance.

“That puts them now in of course a good position for the Champions League fight.

“But I think also by the mental point of view maybe they are reborn and they can bring this kind of performance to the Premier League.”


United face a tough task in the Champions League quarter-finals after they were picked to face Barcelona.

Some furious fans on social media even suggested the draw was fixed by Uefa as Liverpool were picked to face Porto.
