Pep Guardiola: Jurgen Klopp

Pep Guardiola believes that Jurgen Klopp loves the punching games after their 2-2 draw in the Premier League. Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring for the defending champions before Diogo Jota equalized for the visitors. Gabriel Jesus restored their lead but was pegged when Sadio Mane scored shortly after the break. The result meant that Manchester City lead their title rivals by a point with seven games to go in the Premier League.

“He [Klopp] likes these punching games. It was a fantastic advert for the Premier League. Both teams wanted to win. I had the feeling we left them alive but Liverpool are a joy to watch, I know how good and difficult they are,” Pep Guardiola said about Jurgen Klopp. “We performed really, really well. I’m so proud of the team. Now we have seven games left and we have to win all of them or it will be over. I said before the game it doesn’t matter if we win or lose. Of course, it was a massive game but we know what we have to do. Seven games is a lot of games, tough games away – so do they.”

“I don’t know what is going to happen if we win the Premier League but to be there for the fifth season – and I want to win the Premier League – is so good that is doesn’t matter [if we lose the title],” he added. “He makes me a better manager. His teams are positive and aggressive in attack. I try to imitate him in that sense. We aren’t friends, we don’t have dinner together, I have his telephone number but I don’t call him but I have a lot of respect for him and he knows. And next Saturday I will try to beat him.”
