Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has responded to Manchester City,’ Guardiola’s comments about the Reds.
The Cityzens return to the top of the league table on Sunday after thrashing Newcastle 5-0, following Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham.
After the draw Guardiola aimed a jibe at Liverpool, saying ‘everyone in this country supports, them, ‘the media and everyone.
He also brought up the fact the Reds have only won one Premier League title in the last thirty years
During his pre-match press conference on Monday ahead of Aston Villa, Klopp was asked what he made of Guardiola’s comments, the German replied, “I live in Liverpool so yes, here, a lot of people want us to win the league, that’s true!
“But even here it’s probably only 50 per cent, because the other guys [Everton] were involved in another fight, at least until yesterday.
‘Look, as managers – and I had this experience only recently after a game – we are all obviously, how can I say this, we are massively influenced by the game, by the situation and stuff like this.
“But after a game like that… I don’t know exactly what kind of situation Pep was in, but after getting knocked out of the Champions League, that’s already difficult enough to take, but then of course Liverpool made it to the final.
“So of course, you have these kinds of things, ‘They played Villarreal and we played Real” and all these kinds of things, and then you say what you say.
“He was right that we’ve won the Premier League only once.
“I’ve no idea if the whole country is supporting us, that I don’t know. It’s not the feeling I get actually when we go to other places and play there, it’s actually the opposite! But maybe he knows more about that than me.”
