Pep Guardiola was left disappointed and angry with Jurgen Klopp’s comments.
The Reds boss said that City have had more rest unlike Liverpool, which irritated Pep.
“We didn’t have a break, I think City had a two-week break for Covid reasons,” Klopp had said.
“It’s really tough, it’s a tough year, a tough season, I know for some teams it looks like lesser, but for us obviously for the reasons you know, it’s tough.”
“He [Klopp] made a mistake, it was two months off, or three months… no four months we have off. That’s why we’re in top four now… Jurgen has to see the calendar again,” Guardiola said.
“We had covid, we had one week and we played with 14 players at Stamford Bridge.”
“I’m surprised, I thought Jurgen was not that type of manager, like other ones who usually do it, so I didn’t expect that comment,” the City boss added.
“Maybe it was a misunderstanding. If he sees the calendar again, he will realise… it was not two weeks.”
Liverpool face City on Sunday but the war or words has already begun.
