Burnley striker Barnes reveals 'sly Klopp text' ahead of Man City clash

Burnley striker Ashley Barnes is looking forward to today's clash with Manchester City.

Burnley host City this afternoon with Pep Guardiola's side knowing a win will send them back to the top of the Premier League.

Liverpool are currently at the summit with a 5-0 win over Huddersfield on Friday returning the Reds to the top.

"I've had a few messages yesterday from Liverpool fans making a joke of it but it's all good," Barnes told the Burnley Express.

“It would mean everything [to win against City].

“Klopp has even given me a sly text to say that if I score he might sign me for next season – so I might be on the move!

“But look, for something so silly, it would be a massive thing if I was to score and we were to win.

“All of us would probably go down in Liverpool history if we helped them out."
