Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has commented on Jurgen Klopp’s words.
The German, in charge of Liverpool, was referring to City’s coronavirus outbreak over Christmas.
He suggested that as a result of that, Guardiola’s team had two weeks off.
And Guardiola said to The Guardian: “I’ll ask Jurgen tomorrow when I see him what kind of break we had. I’m surprised. Thought Jurgen wasn’t that kind of coach, didn’t expect that comment. Maybe it’s a misunderstanding.”
“He has made a mistake. Jurgen needs to look at the calendar again. There was a coronavirus at the club, we had one week [without football] and we played with 14 players at Stamford Bridge,” Pep said.
