Gary Neville makes Liverpool admission after quadruple miss


Liverpool came up short in the Premier League title race on Sunday

Despite winning 3-1 at home to Wolves, the Reds finished one point behind Manchester City, who beat Aston Villa 3-2 at the Etihad to be crowned champions

Talk in recent weeks has surrounded Liverpool’s chances of winning an unprecedented quadruple after winning the FA Cup and Carabao Cup and qualifying for the Champions League final.. Now that is no longer possible, Manchester United legend Neville is happy. But he admits Jurgen Klopp would still be his manager of the season.

“The effort and their desire every minute of every day and the demands these managers are putting on these players,” said Neville of Reds boss Klopp and City manager Pep Guardiola on his self-titled Sky Sports podcast.

“We’re seeing a Paisley, Shankly, Ferguson-Wenger era, we're seeing it in front of us, we should respect it. Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are delivering greatness in front of our very eyes and we need to appreciate that. They’re going for each other.

“Liverpool go to Paris next week in the Champions League on a treble, a cup treble, to do that is unbelievable. I’m relieved they’re not going to win a quadruple and a treble with a Premier League but that’s a Manchester United perspective not lacking respect for what they’re doing, what they’re doing is top class.

"I voted for Jurgen Klopp for the manager of the season, because what he's done at Liverpool, what they've done with what they're up against. But this manager (Pep Guardiola) is going to go down as one of the greatest in history, his style of football, influence on the game. His influence goes outside of what he’s achieving at Manchester City, that takes a lot to do."
