Manchester City coach Josep Guardiola believes the fierce competition with Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has helped him to be a better coach.
Manchester City meet Liverpool on Sunday, when the Premier League champions visit Anfield, to face the leaders of the current standings.
And the British news agency “BA Media” reported that with Guardiola at the head of the two teams’ technical staff, Manchester City and Liverpool have become a striking force in the English Premier League in recent seasons.
Guardiola said: “Klopp helped me, his team helped me, to be a better coach, put me on another level, to think about this and prove to myself what I need to be a better coach.”
“That’s why I’m still in this business,” he continued. Some coaches, Jürgen included, challenge you to take a step forward. Manchester City won at Anfield last season for the first time in the last 18 years. The match was held last February during the period of closure due to the Corona virus, and there were reports that it was said at the time that the absence of fans might have helped Manchester City, but Guardiola preferred to play in front of a stadium full of fans.
“I am very happy because Anfield will be full of fans and we can go and play there, it’s great that the fans are back and we can have a great atmosphere there, I hope we deal with this well.” “I don’t know the reasons why we didn’t win there in the last 18 years. During the five years I was in charge of Manchester City, Liverpool were an exceptional team,” he said.
