Pep Guardiola vows to confront Klopp over Man City comments

Guardiola upset by Klopp’s comment over Man City’s Covid break.

The Cityzens had their game against Everton postponed on December 28 after a few staff members tested positive.

So they had a gap of eight days before their trip to Chelsea on January 3.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes fatigue and injury is playing a huge part in the squad’s inadequate form.

“We didn’t have a break,” said Liverpool manager Klopp. “I think City had a two-week break for COVID reasons.”

Guardiola was surprised by Klopp’s comments and said he would discuss the matter when they meet on Sunday.

Guardiola said: “He made a mistake. It was two months off, or three months off? No, (it was) four. Four months off.

“That’s why we are in top form right now. Jurgen has to see the calendar again. We had COVID, we have one week and we played with 14 players at Stamford Bridge.

“But maybe I’m wrong and it was not two weeks, it was three or four weeks. Tomorrow when I see Jurgen I’ll say to him: ‘How many weeks or days were we off?’

“I’m surprised. I thought Jurgen was not that type of manager, like other ones who are usually doing it. I didn’t expect that comment.

“But maybe it was a misunderstanding from him. If he sees the calendar again he will realise it was not two weeks, it was two months.”
