Speaking to the press after his team beat Norwich City on Saturday and at least temporarily extended their lead in the Premier League table to 25 points, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was asked to comment on the news that Manchester City had been banned from European competitions for two years.
The German wouldn’t say anything about the club’s finances, but he was full of praise and understanding for Pep Guardiola and his players, and expressed his belief that they will continue to play ‘exceptional’ football.
“I feel for them I really do”
Jurgen Klopp responds to the ‘shock’ of Manchester City being handed a European ban by UEFA.
