Pep Guardiola Guesses Reporter Is Liverpool Fan And Gets It Wrong, They Live Rent Free In His Head

Pep Guardiola asked a reporter if he was a Liverpool fan following Manchester City's 5-0 win over Newcastle United - and got it horribly wrong. Check out the full exchange below.

City went three points clear at the top of the Premier League on Sunday afternoon with three games to go.

It was a great way to bounce back from their dramatic Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of Real Madrid in midweek.

Guardiola was quizzed about this in his post-match press conference and decided to get cheeky with a journalist in attendance.

The City manager was asked: "After Wednesday’s events you must be ecstatic with that performance. That result and scoreline?"

With a wry smile, Guardiola replied: "Did you have any doubts?"

When the reporter said he didn't have too many, he snapped back with: "Yes, you are a Liverpool fan, come on."

After being told he was actually a Manchester United fan, the Spaniard's face dropped and he said: "I’m sorry, James!"

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening which allowed City to open up a gap at the summit.

Supporters think the Reds are currently living in Guardiola's head rent-free however as we approach the business end of the season.

One commented: "Liverpool is living in his head rent free. The man is obsessed."

Another said: "Pep has lost it."

A third put: "Rodrygo has sent this man to a nervous breakdown. Look at him."

While someone tweeted: "Man has won 4 titles in 5 years but still wishes he was us."

Guardiola had earlier in the day claimed the whole of England were supporting Jurgen Klopp's side in the title race, as City chase their fourth title in five years.

"Everyone in this country supports Liverpool, the media and everyone," the former Barcelona boss told beIN Sports.

"Of course because Liverpool has an incredible history behind in European competition - not in Premier Leagues, because they’ve won one in 30 years - but it’s not a problem at all. The situation is what it is."

Goals from Aymeric Laporte, Rodri, Phil Foden and a Raheem Sterling brace means City need seven points from their final three games to be confirmed champions.
