Klopp Responds To Pep’s Claims That Everyone Supports Liverpool. Manchester City leads the Premier League title battle by three points with three games remaining, but manager Pep Guardiola believes “everyone” wants Liverpool to win instead. Jurgen Klopp has rejected these claims, saying that it is “not the emotion” he gets, with only half of Liverpool wanting the trophy returned to Anfield.

After Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said that all neutral football fans would prefer to see the title go to Anfield, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says it doesn’t feel like everyone is rooting for his team in the Premier League final.

Speaking to beIN Sports after City went three points clear at the top of the table with a 5-0 thrashing of Newcastle,  “Everyone in this country supports Liverpool, the media and everyone.” He said.

“Of course because Liverpool has an incredible history in European competition. Not in the Premier League, because they have won one in 30 years, but it is not a problem at all,” he continued.

“Despite taking control of the title race with three games remaining, Guardiola was keen to make his point, saying, “Liverpool are alongside [Manchester] United as the most important team in terms of titles, legacy, history, dramas for many, many things.”

Responding to the Spaniard’s comments, Klopp said, “I live in Liverpool. Here a lot of people want us to win the league that’s for sure. But even here it’s probably only 50%.”
“I don’t know which situation Pep was in. Getting knocked out of the Champions League is difficult enough to take. But then Liverpool made it to the final. You say what you say. I have no idea if the country is supporting us. It is not the feeling I get when we go to other places, it’s actually the opposite,” he said.
Klopp says that when managers are under pressure after a game, they might make weird things. He is well aware that he has done the same thing, saying.
 “As a manager, I had this experience recently. I have said things, would I say it again? No.
“I said Tottenham play how they play but are still only fifth. It felt good at the moment but it is probably wrong.” Klopp said.
