Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has sympathised with rival manager Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team after their cruel exit in the Champions League.
The German tactician made this known during his pre-match press conference ahead of the crucial Premier League clash at Cardiff City on Sunday evening.
Guardiola and Manchester City were dumped out of the Champions League on Wednesday night after their goal was disallowed during their quarterfinal second leg clash with North London giants Tottenham Hotspur.
With the scores at 4-3, Manchester City needed to score a goal to secure a last four spot in the competition ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.
Raheem Sterling thought he has scored that goal in added time only for it to be ruled out by VAR after it had been given by centre referee Cuneyt Cakir.
Manchester City have the opportunity to bounce back from that setback when they face Spurs at home in their Premier League clash scheduled to hold on Saturday afternoon.
A win for the Citizens will push them above Liverpool at the top of the table ahead of the Reds’ away game against Welsh side Cardiff City.
The Bluebirds host Liverpool with the club battling to escape relegation at the end of the current Premier League season.
