Sadio Mane Breaks Silence On Pep Guardiola Claims

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola as the best manager in the world as the Premier League rivals gear up for Sunday's top-of-the-table clash at Anfield. He did previous year something similar, where he was out for a game and then I think a couple of days later he was back on the pitch.

On Wednesday in the Champions League, Ederson exited Man City's match at Atalanta with an injury.

Guardiola, however, did point out that his critique of Mane did come amid a host of compliments about the player and Liverpool, who lead City by six points heading into this weekend's encounter.

Kevin De Bruyne says he does not care about Manchester City's poor record at Anfield, before his team face leaders Liverpool on Sunday. Sometimes at 94 against Leicester with the penalty, it was like "wow".

"That was the intention for my comment".

"After explaining for a minute or so that he doesn't want to talk about Man City, he talks about Man City - it's mind games".

The City manager kicked off the build up on Saturday claiming Liverpool's unbeaten record this season was down to luck by saying, "Sometimes it is diving, sometimes it is this talent to score incredible goals in the last minute. If no penalty, no penalty, but [it will] never anything wrong or change the way I'm playing or the way I'm doing my things". I can say Sadio is not a diver.

"Maybe it was not a penalty but there was contact".

'That's why I said it is not lucky.

Asked for his thoughts on what Klopp had to say, though, Guardiola said that he wasn't even aware of Klopp's comments.

'So it was a praise for Liverpool, not just about one action. Hopefully I can clarify everything for Jürgen. "This year, they are in front of us and will try to go to the end". I'm not thinking of rotating my squad.

Guardiola said: "I'm wanting to quality as soon as possible".

The former Red is expecting a cagey game on Sunday and admits that the more clinical side will have the upper hand on the day.
