[ MORE: Premier League schedule ]
Speaking at the Football Writers Association awards dinner for the North of England, both Klopp and Guardiola won awards and both spoke candidly about the achievements of one another.
Klopp was his usual candid self, as he revealed for the first time just how much he wanted Man City to slip up at the end of last season and his reaction to Vincent Kompany‘s late winner against Leicester City.
Guardiola then appeared after Klopp and suggested they swap the should swap their Premier League trophy for Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League trophy (both of which were on show) and everyone would be happy.
It was very refreshing to see both managers so relaxed and full of respect for the achievement of one another.
So often drama and backchat between managers dominates the headlines, but we need to see more of the respect Klopp and Guardiola have for one another.
I love this video.
