Jurgen Klopp side went three points behind Manchester City after their 1-1 draw against Tottenham and City winning 5-0 against Newcastle, the German have now responded to a comment made by Guardiola after the Eithad side victory over the Magpies.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has responded to the comment of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola that the whole world wants the Reds to win the quadruplet.

The Spaniard made this comment following their victory over Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday.

“Everyone in this country supports Liverpool, the media and everyone,” the City manager said. “Of course, because Liverpool has an incredible history in European competition — not in Premier Leagues, because they’ve won one in 30 years — but it’s not a problem at all.

“Liverpool, alongside [Manchester] United, it’s the most famous team, with what they have done in history — in terms of titles, legacy, history, dramas, for many, many things.

“But we are, for the last 10, 11, 12 years, coming there. I know we are sometimes uncomfortable, but I don’t care. The people want Liverpool to win more than us; it’s not an issue. It’s normal. Maybe they have more supporters all around the world and in England maybe more support Liverpool than us.”

Klopp has now responded to the comment of the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager stating that he had no idea what Guardiola is saying.

He told his press conference: “I live in Liverpool. Here a lot of people want us to win the league that’s for sure. But even here it’s probably only 50%.

“As a manager I had this experience recently, we are obviously influenced by he game the situation. I have said things, would I say it again? No. I said Tottenham play how they play but are still only fifth. It felt good at the moment but it is probably wrong.

“I don’t know which situation Pep was in. Getting knocked out of he Champions League is difficult enough to take. But then Liverpool made it to the final. You say what you say. I have no idea if the country is supporting us. It is not the feeling I get when we go to other places, it’s actually the opposite.”

Manchester City moved to the top of the table with three points lead after they defeated the Magpies 5-0 in the league.

The Etihad side also suffered disappointment in the Champions League after they were knocked out of the prestigious league by Real Madrid.
