Jürgen Klopp said he sent a message to Pep Guardiola shortly after Manchester City beat Liverpool as the champions of England, praising the team he now considers to be the dominant players in the country – they won their third title in four years.
“It’s a great achievement, congratulations. I have written to Pep, and also to Gundogan [foi seu treinador no Borussia Dortmund]. It was a difficult year for everyone, and also for the football teams. What they have achieved this year is exceptional. City have a great team and the best coach in the world so it’s a good recipe. It’s always nice to play against them as it is quite challenging in terms of the game. We can win them, but we have to be at our best, ”he said.
The German coach also talked about what did not go well for him. “What worries me this year is not the difference in points. Last year we didn’t make such a big difference. But City wasn’t the only challenge of the season and it won’t be the next – when Tuchel arrived at Chelsea I said the team was a gift and with Thomas he’s doing very well. They are a beautiful team and they will definitely shine next season, and it won’t get any worse. United are on a good path. Our season was complicated, but we did not close our eyes. We know that we should have five or six more points, even with the injuries we suffered, and to be closer to the Champions League, but we do not blame anyone, ”according to his assessment.
