Did Jose Mourinho ANOTHER swipe at Manchester United as he & # 39; very bright & # 39; praise balloons that helped Liverpool secure an unbelievable comeback against Barcelona?
Jose Mourinho has been praised for Liverpool's quick-thinking balloons in another apparent sweep at his former club Manchester United.
Liverpool youth player Oakley Cannonnier, 14, helped the Reds overcome Barcelona in the Champions League, which promptly dropped the ball to Trent Alexander-Arnold to set up Divock Origi's late winner.
His clever thinking in Anfield's 4-0 win came after the Balloons got a video presentation on how they could help Jurgen Klopp's team.

The Liverpool boss had noticed how much the Barcelona players had argued or disputed every decision in the first leg, with balls later telling boys to return balls quickly to the Reds.
Mourinho praised the club's meticulous planning, and told RT: & # 39; You want a quick insert, the balloons need to know you want a quick insert. The ball must arrive quickly.
& # 39; The goalkicks, the pace of the game, the balloon boys can also play a part in a good structure. & # 39;
He added: & # 39; In this game, the child is, very intelligent, very bright. & # 39;
Mourinho beat regular balloons during his own spell at United, replacing them with academy players in 2017.

& # 39; I was a balloon boy, a top balloon boy, & # 39; also proved the former coach of Chelsea and Inter Milan
Matchday boys and girls were chosen by the Manchester United Foundation before Mourinho opted to replace them with youngsters with & # 39; more knowledge of football. & # 39;
And after Liverpool overcame Barcelona to reach their second consecutive Champions League final, Mourinho seems to have another dig at United, who failed him in December.
& # 39; I had a club where & # 39; they never understood how important the balloon boys are, & # 39; he added.
& # 39; I was a balloon, a top balloon … when I was a balloon, I even knew where the players wanted the ball for a corner, so they didn't have to recommend the ball .
& # 39; (At) a true football club, every detail is very, very important. & # 39;
