Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez, has claimed that Liverpool hate the champions for denying them the Premier League title.
The Reds were close to winning the title on Sunday when Aston Villa took a 2-0 lead at the Etihad against the Citizens.
But Pep Guardiola’s side mounted a comeback late in the second half to win 3-2 and retain their title.
“Liverpool are a mad team, they are a superb team. I know they hate us,” the Algerian star told French channel Canal+ as per Liverpool Echo.
“They’re sick of us because if we weren’t here they would’ve won everything every year, but we’re here and we’re never letting go and we’ll be here next year too.”
Liverpool, who ended up as 3-1 winners over Wolverhampton Wanderers, finished second to the champions with only one point separating them at the top.
