Jurgen Klopp: Pep Guardiola 'best in the world'


Jurgen Klopp believes Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is the best manager in the World

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been able to established himself as one of the most heated rivals of the former Barcelona boss.

Both managers have been challenging each other at the top of the leagues in both England and Germany, dating back to Guardiola's arrival at Bayern Munich in 2013.

Klopp's Dortmund and Liverpool sides have never won a league title under Guardiola reign as manager in the same League, but the German still believe his relationship with Guardiola over the years has not been a typical rivalry.

"I'm lucky that I can say that my teams were at least close to his teams because I've said a lot of times, I think he is the best manager in the world," said Klopp.

"What he is doing with his team is incredible. The way they play, I really like to watch.

"Pep and I, we are different, so our teams mirror our character. He is much finer than I am as a person so he is the gentleman and I look how I look on the touchline. Probably a bit more intense maybe.

"There's no rivalry left or right of football. We respect each other lots but on the pitch we want to beat them, that's normal.

"At the end of the season in most of the seasons he has still won the league. In Germany always, and in England so far as well. That's how it is but I can easily live with that because I have no problem with being second even when I want to be first."
