Pep not happy with Klopp's comments

English Premier League

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was not too pleased with Jurgen Klopp's remarks about the Citizen's getting a 'two-week' break.

Klopp claimed a the Citizens got a lengthy break to the coronavirus outbreak at the club at the end of December, which saw their Premier League clash with Everton postponed.

Ahead of Sunday's Premier League tie between the two sides at the Etihad, Guardiola says he will confront Klopp about those remarks.

“He made a mistake, it was two months, three months, four months - that's why we're in the top-four now,” Guardiola said, as per Goal.

“Jurgen has to see the calendar again. We had Covid, we had one week, we played with 14 players in Stamford Bridge. Maybe I'm wrong and it was two or three weeks.

“When I see Jurgen I will ask him how long we had off. I'm surprised, I thought Jurgen was not that kind of manager, I didn't expect that comment. Maybe it was a misunderstanding. If he sees the calendar he will see it was not two weeks, it was two months.”
