Jordan claims Liverpool manager Klopp beats Guardiola and ‘it’s indisputable’


Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has suggested Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is better than ‘chequebook boss’ Pep Guardiola.

liverpool and Manchester City have been the most notable teams in the Premier League in recent years.

The last time anyone else won the league was in 2016/17, when Chelsea finished seven points clear to claim the title.

Champions League home-and-away should be next for UEFA

Man City and Liverpool are currently first and second in the table respectively. If the latter win their last game in progress, they will come within six points of City.

Guardiola won all domestic trophies with City, but he is yet to win the Champions League. They were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in last season’s final.

Klopp is yet to win a domestic cup in England, but he has guided Liverpool to the Premier League and Champions League.

They can win the Carabao Cup for the first time later this month. They face Chelsea in the final at Wembley.

Jordan pointed out that Guardiola was helped by transfer funds from City:

“If you look at the time they spent together, the fact is that every Premier League point that Guardiola won has cost Manchester City £667,000,” Jordan said. talkSPORT.

“Every point Liverpool gained under Klopp cost Liverpool £243,000. So Guardiola spent almost three times the amount of money Klopp spent.

“Klopp took over a team that was disappointed after losing the Premier League and was in disarray after Brendan Rodgers went astray in that 2014/15 season.

“You have to compare and contrast. If you compare the times they spent there, Guardiola spent three times as much money, in fact.

“If you gave Klopp £667,000 per point won in the Premier League in the six years he was there, he could well be in the same situation as Guardiola because Guardiola is a checkbook manager. It is indisputable!”

Jamie Carragher thinks Liverpool are ‘big favourites’ to beat Inter Milan over two legs in their Champions League Round of 16.

Inter are without many key players for visiting Liverpool. Joaquin Correa and Robin Gosens continue to recover from injuries while Nico Barella is suspended.

Nerazzurri boss Simone Inzaghi has former Premier League stars Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez at his disposal. The first should start in the lead with Lautaro Martinez:

“I’m excited about the tie,” Carragher told CBS Sports (quotes via Metro).

“I think that’s the real big game of the night and one of the biggest of this round.

“But Liverpool and I think Premier League teams now, when they play against Italian teams, are big favourites.”
