Managers of two of the most consistent English clubs of this decade – Manchester City and Liverpool – are facing each other again on Sunday, while Manchester City travels to Liverpool to face them in the Premier League. As always the stakes are high in this game. Just before the game, Guardiola praised Jurgen Klopp saying he helped him become a better manager.
If anyone has been following English football since 2016, then that person would know the importance of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp in the Premier League. These two managers redefined the English league and made it more competitive than ever.
“He (Klopp) helped me. Their teams and they helped me become a better manager. He took me to another level, to think about it and prove myself… that’s why we’re still in this business”, announced Guardiola for Reuters.
Guardiola also praised Liverpool for being “faster” than Man City. “Some managers are challenging you to take a step forward. We did it in Germany… Here in England, we’ve been together for many years. It’s good because both the teams have the same idea – to score goals. They are faster than us, but we are trying to win both the matches.”
Liverpool are in second place and will be in first place if they win today, while the situation is somewhat similar to Man. City, who also have a chance to top the league, see that they win the match against Liverpool. “Winning at Anfield is important, but it is difficult. Last season was the first time in many years. It’s the challenge… for us, it’s an honor to be rivals with Liverpool”, said Guardiola.
Earlier Jurgen Klopp had hailed Manchester City claiming best football team in Europe. Liverpool boss stated “Big, big, Man City is an outstanding football team, the best team in Europe at the moment and it’s a tough one.”
