‘You have the feeling…’ – Tuchel agrees with Guardiola’s bizarre Liverpool complaint ahead of FA Cup final clash

Posted by

Thomas Tuchel has expressed sympathy with Pep Guardiola over the Manchester City’s boss comments around Liverpool being the favoured outfit of neutrals across the country.

The German’s pre-match comments come courtesy of a tweet from Henry Winter ahead of the two sides’ upcoming meeting at Wembley for the FA Cup final.

The Merseysiders find themselves potentially fighting for just the treble this term, dependent on how the league leaders fare in their remaining two fixtures.

It’s somewhat bonkers that we’re having to challenge the notion that Liverpool is a club loved by all given the repeated use of horrific slurs around poverty and the Hillsborough disaster during games from opposition fans.

With all due respect to the Champions League-winner, it would seem that Tuchel is confusing being made favourites for a tie with a general appreciation amongst fanbases across the country.

We’d love to invite both managers in question to Anfield, or any other ground across the Premier League for that matter, and encourage them to simply listen to the crowds.

Perhaps then they may reconsider their views on the matter.
