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.”
