Pep Guardiola has congratulated Liverpool after the Reds claimed their first league title in three decades. Manchester City lost away at Chelsea on Thursday and that loss decided the title race in the Premier League. Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live the Spaniard congratulated the Reds with their league win.
“Well deserved. They [Liverpool] have played an incredible season”, said Guardiola. “Two seasons ago we were 100 points and they finished more than 25 points behind. Last season they didn’t recover the distance and this season they went the distance. We have to learn from this season and improve for the next one.”
After their loss to Chelsea, Manchester City are currently 23 points behind Liverpool on the Premier League table. Despite the loss at Stamford Bridge, the de-crowned champions hold an eight point lead over third-placed Leicester City. In one week time Guardiola will be able to congratulate Jurgen Klopp in person as Liverpool will travel to the Etihad Stadium.
