Guardiola is best coach in the world -Klopp

Klopp Guardiola best coach

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has described his Manchester City counterpart, Pep Guardiola, as the best coach in the world.

He said this on Friday ahead of the crucial Premier League clash on Sunday.

Liverpool are currently second-placed behind league leaders City who are topping them with one point.

Their clash is believed to be the game that will decide the title for this season.

“There is no game in world football you can compare to play against City because they are good in pretty much all areas. There are no real weaknesses,” Klopp told reporters on Friday.

“You have to show the respect they deserve, especially against City as they are pretty good with the ball.

“We know it is tough. What’s changed this last four years is everyone else thinks it is tough when they face us, and that’s really good.

“Nothing to worry about the mentality of my boys. After the (Benfica) game immediately the boys were clear ‘Now it’s City time’. We will be prepared.”

Klopp has no such doubts about Guardiola’s qualities however.

“Pep is the best coach in the world. I think we would all agree on that and it might be a coincidence that it didn’t work out in the Champions League so far,” he said.

“If anybody doubts him, I have no idea how that could happen.”

Klopp believes City’s consistent quality in the Guardiola era has forced Liverpool raise their own standards.

“We pushed each other to incredible points tallies. Madness. I would have never thought these kind of things were possible, especially not in this league,” he said.

“The consistency both teams showed in that period was absolutely crazy.”
