Pep Guardiola responds to Jurgen Klopp complaints with Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho comparison
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he 'supports' Jurgen Klopp's comments on the fixture schedule, but admits 'it is not going to change'.
Klopp was left far from happy at the fact his side will have to play Newcastle United in the early 12:30 Saturday kick-off later this month, just days after the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie against Villarreal. He hit out at the tight turn around ahead of his side's win over Benfica earlier this week.
City face a slightly kinder schedule surrounding the Champions League semi-finals, with a Tuesday, Saturday, Wednesday run of games. Guardiola, though, says he supports Jurgen Klopp's complaints '100%'.
Ralf Rangnick confirms Manchester United injury blow ahead of Liverpool clash
Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has ruled out defender Luke Shaw for the remainder of the season, ahead of the Premier League clash against Liverpool on Tuesday.
The left back was forced off with an ankle problem at half time in United's 1-1 draw against Leicester earlier this month. He hasn't featured since and it appears the injury will keep him sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.
Rangnick's side take on Norwich City on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League, before they face Liverpool on Tuesday. He'll be without five players, including Shaw.
