Manchester City’s boss Pep Guardiola has stated that Liverpool will be given a guard of honour when they come visiting on Thursday at the Etihad Stadium.
This is the first game in 30 years that Liverpool will be in this situation, and the Spaniard believes they deserve it.
“We are going to do the guard of honour of course,” BBC Sport quoted Guardiola.
” Liverpool will be greeted when they come to our house, in an incredible way. We are going to do it because they deserve it.”
Manchester City enjoyed same privilege severally when they won the title under Pep Guardiola.
However, Guardiola has refused to say whether he will be willing to extend his City contract when it expires.
His contract expires in 2021 and Pep would have spent five seasons in Manchester. He has spent more time with City than he did while in charge of either of Barcelona or Bayern Munich.
Prior to Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final at Newcastle, Guardiola said: “I am incredibly hungry for this part of the season and the next one and after that we will see.
“I am incredibly satisfied to be at this club. I don’t want to think too much about things that are far away.” BBC Sport reported.
