Klopp responds to Pep’s CL or PL comments with jibe
Jurgen Klopp thinks Pep Guardiola “has to say” that the Premier League is more important to win than the Champions League after Manchester City edged out Liverpool in the title race.
Guardiola’s side were knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals to Tottenham – who will play Liverpool in the final on Saturday – but they won the domestic treble with League Cup and FA Cup triumphs to add to their Premier League title.
And Guardiola recently said that it was more important to win the Premier League than the Champions League this season.

In response to those comments, Klopp told reporters: “Pep has to say (PL is more important to CL) that as he hasn’t been in Champions League final for a while! He is a great manager and deserves all the praise he gets.
“We tried to win the PL this season. City were a better team. But there’s another competition we’re in – we want to win Champions League.”
On the final, Klopp added: “We feel this as a real European final. Nothing else. It’s a proper European final, nothing else. It’s not the third game we’ve played against Tottenham this season – it’s a European final.”
