Painful To See Liverpool Lose EPL Title To Man City With Just One Point –Gundogan

Manchester City forward, Ilkay Gundogan has revealed that he felt pity for Liverpool to have lost the Premier League title with just one point.

He noted that the Reds had an incredible season, which saw them win the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, made the Champions League final and fought for the EPL title till the last day.

Gundogan provided an incredible comeback on the final day of the season to secure the Premier League title for Pep Guardiola’s side.

From the first half until deep into the second half, City were 2-0 down and heading for second place. Gundogan came off the bench and pulled one back.

Rodri levelled for City before Gundogan again completed a six-minute comeback that won the title for the Pep Guardiola side.

Liverpool finished the league season on 92 points, just one behind City, and the Germany international praised and commiserate with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“I know it’s tough to say, but if Liverpool wouldn’t be there and play the way they play, very successful, this league wouldn’t be that attractive,” Gundogan told Sky Sports.

“Even though they finished just one point behind us, they played an incredible season. They pushed us to the limit, it’s a sad day for them but we need to appreciate what they’ve done and especially my former coach.

“We look forward to competing with them next season,” he added.


Personal life


Gündoğan’s cousin Naz Aydemir, who is raised in Turkey, is a volleyball player for Fenerbahçe and the Turkish women’s national team.


In May 2018, Gündoğan met President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in London, along with Mesut Özil and Cenk Tosun, two other English-based, German-born players of Turkish origin. Gündoğan was criticised for referring to the statesman as “my president”, despite only being a citizen of Germany. The incident caused political controversy in Germany and Gündoğan was jeered by German fans when playing for the national team weeks later.

    Liverpool don’t need his pity. As far as I’m concerned, they worked hard and did the very best they could offer. Let’s look at this , this season showed how much they improved unlike the last season where due to injuries almost didn’t make it to the champions League. This season they reached 4 finals , the uefa champions League, the carabo cup, the FA Cup and the league title . Its like working with a super machine. Not even Manchester United or any premier League or Barcelona or Real Madrid have ever done such an herculean task and this comment is not an act of disrespect to anyone of them but this is the truth .
    There was not reliance of top players because everyone was the match winner for the team . When Salah and Mane went for AFCON, Liverpool won their matches with players in the bench . Even Origi came from the bench to win vital matches for the team . They won the carabo cup and the FA cup. Though aiming for the quadruple titles was a far dream , yet they never disappointed.
    Right now, they have to go all out and Win that champions League against Real Madrid which is a task that requires lots of strategy .

    I am proud of Liverpool FC. They are true champions.
