“Jose is a world-class manager. He has been until this point of his career and will continue to be that,” said Rodgers, who spent time as Mourinho’s youth and reserve-team manager at Chelsea.
“It (criticism) is a lack of respect and normally from people that have never stood on this sideline.
“OK, football continues to evolve and change, but you still have room for different types of football.
“Jose’s a master at getting his teams organised, difficult to beat and winning. There’s different philosophies and identities of managers and there’s no right or wrong.
“He’s proven over many years that he’s such a successful manager and he’ll be looking to bring success to Tottenham. His longevity in the game, what he’s done, and what he continues to do deserves a huge amount of respect.”
