Guardiola makes Liverpool claim

After angering Manchester City supporters this week by asking more fans to turn out at the Etihad Stadium for the team's clash with Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday, Pep Guardiola referenced Liverpool in his response to the criticism.

Guardiola was asked about his comments at his press conference on Friday after City Official Supporters Club general secretary Kevin Parker told the manager to "stick to coaching" and he namechecked the Reds in a response, suggesting the Premier League champions want to forge their own identity.

"This is a big mistake. We are who we are. We are proud of who we are. I know our history," he said. "I have learned that they [Man City fans] were in the lower divisions and fans travelled to watch them. I don't want to be like United, Liverpool, Bayern, Barcelona, Madrid."

Raducanu reacts to Jurgen Klopp praise

Emma Raducanu stunned the sporting world last weekend with her incredible win in the U.S. Open.

The 18-year-old became the first qualifier to ever win a Grand Slam tennis title and key figures in the sporting world have been reacting to her remarkable exploits, including Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

After Klopp described Raducanu as the "talent of the century", the new tennis sensation was asked what she made of such high praise.

"It’s very, very nice to hear and I’m very grateful," she said. “I think that women’s tennis at the moment is extremely strong and the game has all of the players who can win pretty much every event and I’m really grateful to Mr Jurgen Klopp for his comment."

Fresh update offered on Salah contract

After another goal for Mohamed Salah on Wednesday in Liverpool's 3-2 win over AC Milan in the Champions League, Klopp was asked about the Egyptian's contract status at his press conference on Friday.

Salah's current deal is set to expire in two years and Liverpool are clearly keen to get him tied down to fresh terms after continuing his imperious goalscoring touch this season.

However, Klopp said there had been little movement regarding an extension.

"There is nothing really to say about it, especially not from me as I am not involved," he said. "Obviously the only thing I am really interested in is how Mo looks, how sharp he is, how committed he is at the moment and that's absolutely spot on."
