Jurgen Klopp has stated he feels sorry for football fans who doubt Liverpool’s chance of lifting the premier league.
Liverpool are currently leading the Premier League pack at the top of the table, with a four-point gap over City.
The Reds were a force in the previous English division league, but have failed to win the Premier League since its inception in 1992.
The Merseyside club has been yearning for the PL in over two decades, but rivals would rather City lift the title.
“I never thought about that,” Klopp said of creating an “us against the world” mentality. “I love winning because of winning and not because someone else has to lose.
“I cannot take a personal boost from winning and thinking they lost. I am not like that.
“If people think like that and gain something out of the fact that we will not win the league, I feel for them. I cannot use them for motivation because they are not people I am interested in, to be honest.
“It is a waste of time for me to think of anybody losing something. If you win it, you win it, and you deserve to. ‘Congratulations. Carry on.’ That is how I see it.”
“I don’t know who thinks like that about us, but probably in Manchester there are not a lot of Liverpool supporters,” Klopp said.
“Unfortunately I don’t know enough people in England and the people I do know – even if they are Evertonians and know me personally – they think ‘if not us, then you can win it’. It is still Liverpool [the city].
“But it is not a surprise that people in Manchester might not want us to win it!”
