'I Feel For Man City, Guardiola' – Jurden Klopp

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has reacted to the ban placed on Manchester United Football club by UEFA

According to Klopp, he feels for the club and its manager, Pep Guardiola.

Speaking with BBC Sports, the German said he was shocked by the ban.

He said;

It was a shock. Complete wow!

The only thing I can say is about football. What they have done on the football pitch is exceptional. The rest, I don’t know.

I really feel for them, Pep and the players, but that is how it is. They can appeal. So, we will see what happens then. It is obviously serious.

But the football they played was exceptional and will always be exceptional.

'Man City May Sack Me If I Don’t Beat Real Madrid' - Guardiola

'Man City May Sack Me If I Don’t Beat Real Madrid' - Guardiola

Pep Guardiola, city boss who has won five major trophies in three seasons at the Etihad, said he could be sacked if he fails to beat Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Man City May Sack Me If I Don’t Beat Real Madrid - Guardiola

The Manchester City manager has done much well in his job at Etihad but has failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League

Guardiola’s side trail Liverpool at the top of the Premier League by a mammoth 22 points this season with their campaign now set to be judged on how they fare in Europe.

He said;

I want to win the Champions League. I dream (of it) and I will enjoy preparing for the games against Madrid.

If we don’t beat them, OK, come the chairman or the sports director and say, ‘It’s not good enough, we want the Champions League, I’m going to sack you.

I don’t know (if this would happen). It has happened many times and could maybe happen.
Guardiola also hit back at the suggestion that the success or failure of a season should only be measured in trophies.

He added

We give a bad, bad message for the new generation, for our kids, to just count the winner, the trophies to winning.

You say the season is a disaster but if you win the Champions League it will be exceptional. Why? It is difficult to win.

If you don’t, we can say in more than 100 years of history (there) were 100 failure seasons for Manchester City. That is not true.

Brazilian Legend, Kaka Names Two Best Strikers In The World

The Brazilian player also hailed fellow Brazilians Alisson and Fabinho, who are part of the Reds squad who have dominated England.

Kaka said;

Alisson is the best goalkeeper in the world right now, Fabinho is one of the best midfielders, and Firmino and [Luis] Suarez are the best strikers in the world.

Firmino understands his place on the field and changes his position. He doesn’t stay in the box the whole time, he comes and gets the ball and creates the plays.

For me, as a Brazilian, it’s really good to see them having this great success in the Premier League

Manchester United have finally got their man with a whooping €55 million (£47m/$60m) signing of the Portuguese international from Sporting, with the midfielder penning a five-and-a-half-year contract at Old Trafford.

A long-running transfer saga has finally been brought to a close, with the Red Devils snapping up the Portugal international after pursuing him throughout the winter window

With the 25-year-old arrival, it should help to address the shortfalls which see Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay sidelined through injury.

However, Fernandes promised to give his all to the club's cause before thanking Solskjaer at his unveiling, stating;

My love of Manchester United really started when I used to watch Cristiano Ronaldo play and ever since then I have been a big fan of this great club.

For me to now play for Manchester United feels incredible, I have worked hard to get to this moment and I can promise the fans that I will give everything for the badge to help bring us more success and trophies. I want to thank Sporting for everything they have done for me

It is surreal to hear the nice words that have been said about me from players that used to play for this team. A massive thank you to Ole and everyone at Manchester United for the trust they have shown in me and I can’t wait to start to repay that on the pitch.

Reacting, Solskjaer, the Red Devils manager, is confident that a shrewd piece of business has been carried out.

He said;

We have been tracking Bruno for many months and everyone here has been tremendously impressed with all his attributes and what he will bring to this team.

Most importantly he is a terrific human being with a great personality and his leadership qualities are clear for all to see.

Bruno’s goals and assists stats speak for themselves, he will be a fantastic addition to our team and he will help us push on in the second part of the season.

The winter break is coming at a perfect time for us to integrate Bruno into the squad and for him to get to know his team-mates
