Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been very complimentary of Liverpool ahead of his visit to Anfield this weekend.
Perhaps the Spaniard has realised that making snide remarks about our strikers, after winning a game themselves, isn’t going to work.
This could just be more mind games from the former Barcelona and Bayern boss, to be fair, but I really don’t think he’s lying about the calibre of our team.
“As a manager, I said last season when we won the league, they’re the best contender I ever faced in my career to win this league,” he’s quoted as saying by GOAL.
“It was the biggest achievement, or one of the biggest achievements, as a club. It remains the same. Probably right now they’re the strongest team in the world.
“They are an exceptional team. Of course, the history is there for itself. It’s something special, I think more for the quality of the team of what they do, quality of players they have, quality of manager they have, I believe more in that, in the team, than the scenario [atmosphere at Liverpool].
“Right now it’s [Anfield] one of the toughest ones, right now in Europe it’s the toughest stadiums to go there.“
