Liverpool ended Manchester City’s two year reign at the summit of the Premier League and Guardiola has shared his views on the one-sided title race.

For thirty years, Liverpool have been waiting for the elusive Premier League title. Jurgen Klopp has finally delivered a title that Jamie Carragher thought would never be won again.

While Klopp’s men were in a league of their own, they were helped by Manchester City’s poor form. The Citizens were marred by injuries that resulted in nine losses and passing of the baton.

Pep Guardiola hailed the Reds for their impressive season that saw them go on a 27-match unbeaten run. 

“I think Liverpool were exceptional this season and I want to congratulate them,” Metro quoted Guardiola in an interview with beIN Sports . “We were not consistent like previous seasons when we were like machines every single day. 

“But we lost a lot of games this season, and when you lose a lot of games with this opponent, it’s not impossible, but the way we played was good, I don’t have many regrets in the way we played.

“Liverpool played every single game like it was their last game, but we did not play the games like if we do not win, we are going to lose the Premier League.

“They played every single game like they could not lose one game, and we did not.”

Guardiola also heaped praise on Klopp and the job he has done at Anfield. 

“Klopp is an exceptional person, I like to be his colleague, and to compete with him and against him. I think he is an exceptional manager,” Guardiola commented.

“He showed it in Germany and now in England, and wherever he will be he will have success.”

Guardiola might hail Klopp but the same thing cannot be said about Frank Lampard, who continued his beef with the Red’s manager.
