Man City boss Guardiola fed-up with Liverpool media bias: C'mon guys!

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is fed-up with his players getting ignored when compared with their Liverpool counterparts.

Guardiola has enjoyed a fresh pop at Liverpool ahead of the Community Shield, taking issue with Virgil van Dijk's Player of the Year award.

He said, “What we did has never been achieved before. It was awesome – and I think my colleagues and football players worldwide know how difficult it is.

“It doesn't matter if the people who consider the UEFA awards or FIFA awards don't select one of our players.

“But I don't think one player had a better season that Bernardo Silva, for example, who also won the Nations League with Portugal.

“And the year we won the title with 100 points, there was huge respect for Mohamed Salah – but come on, guys!

"Kevin De Bruyne, that season, was above and beyond any normal situation.

“Of course, it is about opinions – and of course we accept it if our players don't deserve to win.

“Maybe we have to win five titles - or maybe Bernardo has to win six

“Or maybe we have to get 250 points next season – but we are going to try."
