Pep Guardiola does not like comments from Liverpool trainer Jürgen Klopp. Sunday The Reds play against Manchester City and according to the German City has had a much simpler schedule.
Klopp recalls that the Citizens did not have to take action for two weeks because of a number of corona infections. As a result, they would now be fitter for the match against Liverpool. “I think Jürgen should look at the calendar again”, says a sarcastic Guardiola at a virtual press conference, recorded by Sky Sports. “We had the outbreak, then a week off, and then we went to Chelsea with 14 players.”
The Spanish practitioner of Manchester City cannot believe that Klopp is making these statements. “I really didnt see that coming. I thought he wasnt that kind of trainer. I would have seen such statements coming from a number of other managers, but not from him. Maybe he misunderstood. If he looks at the calendar again, he will see that we havent had two weeks of rest.”
Guardiola and Klopp meet Sunday afternoon from 17:30 on Anfield. The Citizens are seven points ahead of Liverpool and that means that The Reds should actually win to keep a view on the title.
