Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has hit out at his Manchester City counterpart, Pep Guardiola’s suggestion that winning the Premier League is more important than the Champions League.
The Reds take on Tottenham on Saturday and are playing in the final for the second successive season, having lost out to Real Madrid a year ago.
Klopp’s side also missed out on clinching the Premier League title this campaign, as Guardiola guided his City team to top spot.
“The Premier League is more important for Guardiola because he hasn’t been in the Champions League final for a while.
“Don’t get me wrong, we all know he is the best manager in the world and he deserves all the praise he gets.
“I say that the Champions League is more important because I can still win it and we have already lost the Premier League, as they have a better team and I think our season was better than theirs,” Klopp told a press conference on Tuesday.
