Man City ace Gundogan: Klopp like a father to me

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has admitted his admiration for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Gundogan, who made the switch to the English Premier League after several years at Borussia Dortmund, had nothing but positive words for old boss Klopp.

"Klopp loved me, but I decided to go with Guardiola because his philosophy was very similar to my game," the German explained.

"Klopp is like a father to me.

"Guardiola, a genius, and a teacher, he's the best coach in the world."

When asked to choose between Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo the midfielder hesitated but finally opted for the Argentine star.

"It is difficult to make a choice, but I can say that Messi is more talented," Gundogan added.
