Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has slammed Barcelona for their Champions League defeat against Liverpool in the semifinal second leg clash on Tuesday, May 7.
Liverpool lost the first leg 3-0 in Spain and the second leg was believed to be a Kilimanjaro for Jurgen Klopp's men to climb considering the number of goals they needed.
But against all odds, Liverpool staged a surprise comeback as they defeated Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to reach the final of the 2018/19 Champions League where they will face Ajax or Tottenham.
And while speaking on the match, Jose Mourinho blasted the way Barcelona defenders switched off as Trent Alexander-Arnold took full advantage with a quick corner to set up Divock Origi for what proved to be the winner in the tie.

"When you see a result like this, you have to also speak about collapse, and Barcelona totally collapsed.
"The fourth goal, if you see that goal in an Under 14 or Under 15 match, you would say 'the kids are sleeping, the kids have no mentality to play football, the kids have to learn the basic things of the game.
"But we are speaking about the best players in the world, and to concede that goal really shows you a state of mind.
"Barcelona has some of the best players in the world. It is their natural habitat to play at that level,'' Mourinho said on belN Sports.
