Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola says Jurgen Klopp has inspired him to become a better manager.
Even though it was Liverpool’s crown that had been taken, Klopp was one of the first rival bosses to get in touch when City’s Premier League title success was confirmed on Tuesday night.
The pair are long-standing rivals, having battled against each other for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga for two seasons before renewing acquaintances in the Premier League in 2016.
And although Guardiola has won five domestic titles during that time compared to Klopp’s one, it is clear his respect for the German is huge.
“I appreciate it [the messages] a lot, from Carlo Ancelotti too,” he said.
“I could not answer the messages yet. And I appreciate it because I admire them.
“Jurgen is an inspiration for me. With what he’s done at Dortmund and Liverpool, he made me think a lot about football and my team.
“I can just say thank you so much for what he and Carlo have said.”
