Jurgen Klopp Gives Brilliant Response To Carragher's Man City Vs. Liverpool Claim

​Jurgen Klopp has brilliantly responded to Jamie Carragher's claim that Manchester City vs. Liverpool is the greatest rivalry in English football.

​Carragher talked up Sunday's juggernaut clash between Man City and Liverpool by saying the current rivalry is the best English football has ever seen.

The two Premier League title chasers meet at the Etihad in a crucial fixture that could potentially decide the league champions. 

And ahead of the blockbuster match, former Reds defender Carragher reckons no other fixture in English football can be compared to the rivalry pitting Pep Guardiola's team against Jurgen Klopps's charges. 

The German boss has since reacted to Carragher's statement and jokingly agreed with his claim. 

"Then yes," Klopp said via Liverpool World when he found out it was Carragher behind the comment. 

He added: "I've watched a lot of football in my life but cannot say I was always in the subject.

"I know about big rivalries. It’s cool. In the last four years, since we stepped up a little bit and closed the gap on City slightly, it’s interesting - absolutely.

"We push each other to incredible points tallies - madness. I never thought these kind of things were possible, especially not in this league.

"The consistency both teams showed is incredible. We had our top year where we won the league and City could not - there was a little gap.

"There were years, especially last year when there was a gap again because we had our problems. Apart from that, it was always close.​

"We know it’s tough. what’s changed in four years is everyone thinks it’s tough when they face us and that’s good."

Man City and Liverpool have battled for the league title since the 2018/19 season. 

Guardiola got the better of Klopp that campaign, with the Liverpool gaffer securing the club's first Premier League triumph the following term.

​Though the Spaniard wrestled back the title last season. 

Man City and Liverpool are on course for another epic title race ahead of the final stretch.
