EPL: I feel for Guardiola – Klopp
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he feels for Pep Guardiola and the Manchester City players after the club’s suspension from Europe.
Uefa have banned City from European competition for two years for “serious” financial fair-play breaches.
City plan to appeal against the ban and have 10 days to take the issue to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
“It was a shock when I heard it. In this moment I imagine it’s very hard for them,” the German said.
“I have no idea how these things work – what I can say is Manchester City under Pep Guardiola play sensational football. I’ve always admired what they do.
“To be honest I feel for Pep and the players because, wow, they did, for sure, nothing wrong. They just played football and sensational football.
“Pep helped the league to improve football.”
