[Manchester City have been left bemused after Jurgen Klopp claimed Liverpool do not inhabit the same transfer ‘fantasy land’ as the Premier League champions] It looks like there are four clubs in the world who can do it constantly. Madrid, Barcelona, Man City and PSG. You cannot compare that.
We were a little bit surprised. Liverpool are a great sporting rival. I don’t know why they would make these comments. I don’t know why they would look at other clubs. It’s not frustration or anger, we just find it curious that they’d be highlighting our spending. We’re fine with their spending. The reality is that all the top clubs invest as they see fit. Saying us, PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona always invest £200 million is not correct. We don’t look at what others do

[Manchester City have criticised the Premier League’s changes to the Christmas fixture list, arguing that their congested schedule threatens the sporting integrity of the English top-flight] We’re disappointed that the schedule is so tight for the players over Christmas. Premier League games are a huge physical demand, and it’s not ideal to be made to play twice in less than 48 hours because it doesn’t give the players time to properly recover.
We obviously understand that the paying rights-holding broadcasters are an important consideration when it comes to scheduling, but we also need to make sure that we protect the players’ wellbeing, the sporting integrity of the league, and the quality of the product. We’ve had an open dialogue with the league to consider other options, but ultimately, we will have to comply with the kick off times and dates as they have been presented to us
