Liverpool boss Klopp insists no Guardiola issues

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he has no problem with Manchester City rival Pep Guardiola ahead of Sunday's clash.

Klopp was today asked what his relationship with Guardiola is like, after a recent spat over Sadio Mane's alleged dive against Aston Villa.

“It's very respectful from my side," Klopp said when asked what he thinks of the former Bayern boss. "It doesn't change during games from my side.

“It is about who we support and all we can do with our team.

“I couldn't respect him more. Best manager in the world.

“He's made a proper impact on this team."

He then joked: “He is now at Man City and the football is not too bad.

“I don't have a negative relationship with anyone on the sidelines.

“It might look like that but it is respectful. Very respectful."
