Pep Guardiola makes huge Liverpool claim following derby win over Manchester United
Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola insists that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side are the toughest opponents he has faced in his career so far.
The Spaniard made the big claim about Liverpool, following Manchester City’s comfortable 4-1 win against Manchester United in the Manchester derby on Sunday evening.
Man City are top of the Premier League table with 69 points from 28 matches, six points clear of the second-placed team, Liverpool.
Although, Liverpool have a game in hand in the Premier League.
“The toughest opponent I’ve ever faced in my twelve, thirteen years as a manager.” Guardiola told Sky Sports
Liverpool have been a credible force, not allowing Pep Guardiola’s side any breathing space in the Premier League this season.
For City to win the title for the second season in a row, it will certainly not be on a silver platter, with the Reds promising to make things very difficult.
Guardiola was a former Barcelona manager, and we all know the intense rivalry between the Catalan giants and Real Madrid in Spain.
It seems that Guardiola rates the current Liverpool squad even higher than the Madrid sides he faced as a manager.
