Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, says he “doesn’t believe” Jurgen Klopp after he said his Liverpool can’s catch the champions in the title race as they are presently nine points behind City with a game in hand.
After a 2-0 win over Leicester City on Thursday, Klopp played down his chances of lifting the title this season, saying that “I do not think that [City] smell our breath already.”
Guardiola, however, thinks the German might be engaging in mind games.
“I don’t believe him.
“Absolutely [it’s possible] and he thinks the same, otherwise he wouldn’t be the competitor that he is.
“Of course he believes. In football, everything can happen. He knows that he has to win a lot of games like we know we have to win a lot of games to fight to be champion again,” Guardiola told a news conference on Friday.
City and Liverpool have shared the last four Premier League titles.
