Man City boss Guardiola: Anfield atmos why you work in football

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he loves going to Anfield.

Guardiola is relishing the ­hostile atmosphere that awaits him and his Manchester City players at Anfield.

While Guardiola hopes there is no repeat of the ugly scenes that saw City's coach come under ­attack there in 2018, he welcomes the ­fervent scenes inside the famous arena.

“I love it," said Guardiola. “I didn't like what happened in the bus outside the stadium but, in the stadium, when they support the team, it's perfect, it's lovely.

“That's why we're involved in this business, to be involved in this kind of experience, in these stadiums.

“They're an exceptional team and the stadium makes an influence.

“The history speaks for ­itself, it's something special, but I think it's more for the quality of the team and what they do, the quality of the players and the ­manager they have.

“I would say, right now, it's the toughest stadium in Europe to go to."
