Jurgen Klopp admits he ‘felt’ for Manchester City after their dramatic Champions League quarter-final exit to Tottenham.
City’s hopes of an unprecedented ‘quadruple’ were ended by Premier League rivals Spurs, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side progressing to the semi-finals for the first time in their history on away goals.
With the tie poised at 4-4 on aggregate Raheem Sterling thought he had won the tie in stoppage time, only for VAR to dramatically disallow the ‘goal’ for an offside.
Liverpool boss Klopp, who’s team are embroiled in a title race with City, admits he ‘felt’ for Pep Guardiola’s side but isn’t sure the defeat will impact City’s hopes of retaining the Premier League title.
“I’ve no idea, but it was unbelievable, eh? Seeing that, I just really felt for them,” Klopp told the press ahead of his sides clash away to Cardiff on Sunday.
”That’s how it is. Everybody thought the ball was in and the whole stadium is celebrating.
“I know some people say without VAR it’s a clear goal but it was offside in that moment. Nobody really doubts that, but that’s tough to take, I’m 100% sure.”
