Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has criticized all Liverpool supporters and Citizdens haters, saying that the club led by Jurgen Klopp has only won one title in 30 years. He said, during an interview with beIN Sports: "Liverpool have an incredible history at European level, but they don't have it in the Premier League, where they have only won once in thirty years.
A week ago no one thought we would become champions. Everyone in this country supports Liverpool: the media, the fans and everyone else. It will be a good duel with the Reds for the Premier, even if they are not used to winning it.
Now we have to score nine points, maybe six, it will depend on the next races. Our destiny is in our hands, we will have to try to win and we have to look only to ourselves."
