Pep Guardiola shrugs off Kyle Walker tweet, Juergen Klopp unimpressed
February 2, 2019
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp appeared unimpressed when asked about it by reporters on Friday. “I never celebrated that another team dropped points or lost a game,” said the German. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has shrugged off suggestions that a mocking tweet by defender Kyle Walker could provide extra motivation for leaders Liverpool in their Premier League title battle. Walker posted the comment and then deleted it after Liverpool were held 1-1 by Leicester City at Anfield on Wednesday. Victory would have sent Liverpool seven points clear of defending champions City, who slumped to a 2-1 defeat at struggling Newcastle United on Tuesday night, instead of the current five.
