Jurgen Klopp reveals why overcoming Man City is so important to him


Jurgen Klopp has revealed that aspiring to be the coach that can defeat the best team in the world is what drives him ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

The Reds head to the Etihad Stadium trailing the hosts by just one point at the Premier League summit, and can take the initiative in the title race with a win – a feat they have not managed domestically since 2015.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s showdown, Klopp doubled down on his belief that Man City are the best team around and Pep Guardiola is the best manager in the world, and that overcoming them is his ultimate goal.

“What I say about City, I really mean. Pep is the best coach in the world – no problem with that – but I always wanted to be the coach of the team who can beat the best team in the world,” he said.

“And actually I achieved that as well, somehow – and now we have to make sure Sunday is the day. There is a little bit of work to do but we have time and nothing else to do, so let’s give it a try,” Klopp said.
