"I will not say anything without the presence of my lawyer," joked the German
The Spaniard recalled that City wanted to expel him from the Premier
MADRID, 3 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Manchester City and Liverpool coaches, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, valued this Friday, between resentment and surprise, Chelsea's spending of more than 600 million euros this season, in signings that continued to arrive in the recent winter market like the Argentine Enzo Fernández.
"It's not my business. Of course, I know what would happen if he went with us, they would have criticized us because they have done so in the last five or six years. It's a surprise because it's not a state club," the Catalan coach added sarcastically.
"What counts is winning titles. You need good players, everyone believes it, but the market is incredible. You have to spend to achieve it. This is the reality. In football there is no position in which you are absolutely right, so we do the best we can", added Guardiola.
The Catalan coach also recalled that his club has the fifth budget and that they have won 11 titles in the last five years. "We were accused. I do not forget, nine Premier teams sent a letter to disqualify us," he said.
On the other hand, from Liverpool, Klopp was surprised by the ability to sign a Chelsea that, in addition to a bad sporting moment, recently went through the change of ownership of the property after the forced departure of the Russian oligarch Román Abramóvich.
"I won't say anything without my lawyer present. It's a joke. I don't understand this part of the business, what you can do and what you can't do. All in all, it's a very high number in the last two windows. They are very good players. I don't understand how it's possible, but I don't have to explain it myself," Klopp said at a press conference.
