The germen midfielder believes that Pep Guardiola and his Liverpool fellow are both world class, but believes that the former is “probably the best”. Ilkay Gundogan has revealed that Pep Guardiola is better that Jurgen Klopp.
He said that the former Bayern Munich boss is “probably the best in the world”.
The German has played under the germen coach at Dortmund and he has won the German league title with him in 2011-2012, In that year they have also reached to the Champions league finals.
Ilkay Gundogan joins Manchester city in this June and now playing under the Spaniard. Pep thwarted klopp and Borussia Dortmund under his time in charge of Bayern Munich.
"Both are world-class managers with their own qualities," Gundogan was quoted as saying by the Express.
It wouldn't be fair to say Jurgen is more emotional but when you see him on the sidelines living every minute, it's not hard to understand why Dortmund were so successful under him.
"Pep is equally passionate but in a different way. He is more like a genius who reads the game and covers every situation imaginable. He is always showing us how to create space and find solutions and there is no manager like him, which makes him probably the best in the world."
City defeated Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday as their impressive start to the 2016-17 season continued, and Gundogan hailed the focus and adaptability of his new team-mates.
"We're really happy to have this quality in the squad," he said.
"There is still potential to get better but every single game is a new one, starting from zero. From what I've seen so far we need to be very flexible because no one will stay for 30 minutes in the same role because we are changing all the time.
