Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on rivals Liverpool after winning the 2021-22 Premier League title.
An exciting fixture at the Etihad ended 3-2 in City’s favor after the defending champions came back to retain their crown, scoring three goals in the final 14 minutes.
The Reds beat Wolves before winning 3-1, but that was not enough, as they were already one point behind their opponents.
However, Guardiola had plenty of praise for the Reds for pushing the city dwellers to play at their best. Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, the Spaniard said:
“I’ve never seen a team like Liverpool in my life. I know it’s difficult but congratulations. They’ve made us a better team every season. They push us!”
Until the 76th minute, the Sky Blues led 2-0 against Villa, while their Merseyside rivals were trailing 1-1 against Wolves as a spectacular turnaround seemed to be in the post.
However, three goals in the space of five minutes – an Ilkay Gundogan brace on either side of Rodri’s strike – put the team in control as they claimed their fourth title in five years. Liverpool also conceded two goals late, but alas, that was the case too late.
Manchester City’s season may be over, but not Liverpool
Having lost all of their cup competitions this season, Manchester City are minutes away from finishing the season without a title. However, an incredible comeback helped them save their campaign when they kept the Premier League crown.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are left to miss again. However, their season is not over yet. The Red Devils will face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final in Paris on May 28.
With the Carabao Cup and FA Cup already in their pockets, Klopp’s side will win the ‘triple’ as they turn their attention to next Saturday’s crucial game.
It was a rematch of the 2018 Kiev final, where they suffered a disappointing 3-1 defeat. They redeemed the following year by going all the way in Madrid, but there was a sense of unfinished business in the Reds’ camp.
