I rejected Klopp and Liverpool for Man City move, says Sane

I rejected Klopp and Liverpool for Man City move, says Sane

"Liverpool are one of the few sides around for whom, given a fair wind, beating Manchester City at their own game seems even a possibility. That's all I want to fight for with my players during the game", he told reporters.

Pep Guardiola has become the first manager to win the Premier League Manager of the Month award in four successive months.

The pacey winger has been in spectacular form for City this season, scoring six goals and supplying nine assists for the runaway Premier League leaders.

The Premier League leaders had a £60m bid for the Chile worldwide accepted in August, only for the proposed transfer to collapse as Arsenal failed in their attempt to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco as a replacement. I don't want to sound disrespectful because I really liked him; he was five years here and since I came in he was always in the dressing room. City were exposed on their left-hand side with [Nicolas] Otamendi and [Mohamed] Salah taking advantage of [Fabian] Delph, who we all know is not a left back, and Otamendi was exposed. But tomorrow it is so important to realise again, if we are able to do big things in this season.

Becoming England's third top-flight "invincibles" isn't the only milestone fuelling City's charge.

Shakhtar insist it is below their valuation - but the move is a signal of City's determination to land their man.

"It's interesting to play against City".

The Belgian has been a focal point of City's march towards the Premier League title and is tipped to be named PFA Player of the Year this season.

The Reds endured a jam-packed festive schedule in which they played 14 games in 49 days, capped off by the 2-1 FA Cup win over their Merseyside rivals last weekend.

The Egypt worldwide has missed the club's last two matches after picking up a groin problem, but he is ready to return this weekend.

"If nothing happens in this moment, Mo is back", Klopp said.

Having not played since Friday 5, the Liverpool manager will have a fresh team available having enjoyed a productive festive period - extending their unbeaten run to 17 games. "You need to show up".
