Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola feels the current Liverpool side is up there with the best he has faced as a manager.
The 48-year-old has enjoyed incredible success at all three clubs he has managed – taking three La Liga titles, two Champions Leagues plus a couple of Copa del Reys while at Barcelona.
Three Bundesliga crowns followed at Bayern Munich, with a brace of DFB-Pokal triumphs also on the former Spain international’s CV.
Guardiola’s City are currently locked in a battle with the Reds for Premier League glory 12 months after he secured his first English top-flight crown with the Etihad outfit.
The talented tactician has faced the best sides Europe has to offer during his 11 years as a coach and he believes that Jurgen Klopp’s team is as good as anything he has opposed. “In my career as a manager, I played against incredible sides,” he told The Telegraph. “There are two that were, ‘Wow’.

One is Barcelona with Luis Enrique, with Neymar, (Lionel) Messi and (Luis) Suarez up front. “The other is this Liverpool.
I think they’re the best two sides I’ve faced as a manager. That’s why, arriving at this stage after 100 points (last season), is the most satisfaction I’ve had as a manager.” City need to beat Leicester City on Monday night to return to the top of the table and ensure they hold all the aces heading into the final day of the season.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
