Pep Guardiola Reveals Manchester City ‘best rivals’ ahead Liverpool clash

 Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has admitted that Liverpool are his “best rivals” since he arrived in England.

Guardiola was speaking at a press conference on Friday, ahead of the visit of the Reds in the Premier League this weekend.

The Spaniard was asked whether City’s rivalry with Liverpool is like Barcelona vs Real Madrid.

Guardiola replied: “It’s different. If you compare it to Barcelona vs Real Madrid, Man City was never in the past 20 to 30 years a contender like Liverpool.

“But in the last decade, since I’ve been here, Liverpool have been our best rivals.

“This is the reality and of course, we are still there. That’s a big compliment to both Man City and Liverpool. After many, many years we are still there.”
