Pep Guardiola has come out to say Liverpool are the ‘most difficult’ league opposition he has faced in his career.
City are involved in one of the tightest Premier League title races in years with the Reds, as they lead their rivals by one point with two matches remaining.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss is no stranger to winning league titles with eight in his top-level managerial career so far, but believes Liverpool have been the staunchest challenger despite facing off against the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid in previous campaigns.
“In the league, yes, it is the most difficult one for sure. Every league you win is so nice and it is always difficult, but this one especially so,”
“And especially where we have come from, getting 100 points and still being there. [It is hard] for athletes to maintain that level for a long time and we have done it again.”
