Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hinted he’s Jurgen Klopp is leaving Liverpool at the end of the season.

Reacting to Klopp’s shock decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season, Guardiola admitted he will now sleep better at night.

Guardiola said: “He’s an absolutely incredible manager, I don’t know him closely but I think he’s an incredible person as well.

“I have the feeling that when he leaves at the end of the season, part of us at Manchester City is leaving too. They have been our biggest rival, Liverpool in the last years.”

“All the managers will (feel tired) when you’ve done many years, I feel it completely. I felt it at Barcelona so I understand it completely,” Guardiola continued.

“He’s been my biggest rival so I think he will be missed,” Guardiola added.

“I am a little bit pleased because without him I will sleep a little bit better the night before we play against Liverpool but I wish him all the best. He doesn’t admit but he will be back.”
