Guardiola backs 'exceptional' Klopp to bounce back

  Guardiola backs 'exceptional' Klopp to bounce back Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola offered his support to Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp after the Reds' downturn in form led to rumours the German could walk away from the Premier League champions. Guardiola and Klopp have battled for supremacy for the majority of their time in England together with City and Liverpool the Premier League's two dominant sides for the past four seasons. City look set to win their third title in four years after opening up a seven-point lead at the top of the table with a game in hand to come.

Money just scores goals, that's how honest Pep Guardiola was after the 2-0 from Manchester City at Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Champions League . ( The game for reading in the ticker )

"We have a lot of money to buy a lot of incredible players." This is how the trainer justified the success of his team.

What came across as astonishingly honest was possibly meant to be the point against all those critics who see the success of the Skyblues as being based solely on the excesses of transfer. So much driest sarcasm is accused of the Spaniard.

Unconsciously, however, it was much more, namely a painful reminder of everything that has gotten out of balance in modern football - and why Guardiola's ManCity should not actually participate in the premier class.

Manchester City narrowly escaped the European Cup ban

This is what the European Football Union (UEFA) supervisory body decided almost exactly a year ago: For violating the rules of Financial Fair Play (FFP), it imposed an two-year European Cup ban on the Sheikh Club hefty fine .

A decision that was cashed in by the CAS International Sports Court in summer : No suspension, lower fine - to Guardiola's delight, who spoke of a "good day for football" at the time. Guardiola: Transfers 2020 for 175 million euros

Guardiola demands more as Man City cruise to brink of Champions League last eight

  Guardiola demands more as Man City cruise to brink of Champions League last eight Manchester City moved to the verge of the Champions League quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach on Wednesday but coach Pep Guardiola insisted his team still need to "be more clinical up front". A first half header from Bernardo Silva and a Gabriel Jesus strike in the second period of the last 16 first leg tie extended a winning streak by Guardiola's high-flying side to 19 games in all competitions. Premier League leaders City camped inside the Gladbach half for most of the game, which was moved to Hungary due to Germany's Covid-19 travel restrictions.

That a coach is happy to continue to compete with his team in the most important competitions with other top clubs is one thing. The other: a lack of humility in the face of an extremely controversial quasi-acquittal.

expressed itself even more strikingly through the behavior of the club in the summer: The lock narrowly escaped and zack, transfer offensive with expenses of over 175 million euros (with transfer income of just around 60 million euros).

The fact that Guardiola is now boasting about the large amount of money that City has at its disposal may be honest, may possibly be sarcasm - but above all it is a slap in the face of all those football clubs that try to do justice to financial fair play, and with it sheer mockery.
