“Liverpool is the toughest opponent I’ve ever faced in my 12, 13 years as a manager,” Pep Guardiola said at a press conference after the Manchester derby, which his City side won 4-1.
“Liverpool in the past few years have been outstanding.”
This is some special praise from Pep considering he faced strong Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Chelsea sides during his time at Barcelona, Bayern, and Man City.
It shows the fantastic work Jurgen Klopp has done at Liverpool. The Reds are currently six points behind City but have a game in hand.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City continued their fine form and charge for their Premier League defense as they demolished Manchester United 4-1 on Sunday evening.
