Pep Guardiola: Best is yet to come from Leroy Sane


In Manchester City's case, the Premier League champions have carried numerous latter during their International Champions Cup tour in the United States, largely due to the fact that their stars are still recovering from a long 2017/18 PL season, in addition to duties at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Klopp insisted that he wanted to do things differently when Manchester United paid a then world record fee to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.

Klopp praised Mane's performance after coming on in the second half.

Asked whether the Red Devils can be considered serious challengers ahead of an International Champions Cup clash with AC Milan, the Portuguese said: "I don't answer to your question". He played balls in behind and made life hard.

"I think this is the team [to challenge City]. The day that this is football, I'm not in a job any more". I look to the other side.

Gomez may be required to play right-sided full-back for the final game of Liverpool's USA tour after Nathaniel Clyne returned home for family reasons and Alexander-Arnold still on holiday after the World Cup.

Liverpool have spent more than £170m on new players this summer but securing Salah on a new five-year contract worth around £200,000 a week, without a release clause, was arguably the club's most important piece of business.

Guardiola however sounded a positive note about the absentees. "I really do", told Sky Sports News. "Don't find excuses", he said.

"We're very happy to be here now and we're looking forward to the new season".

"In the past it didn't happen, years ago, and that is good for our future". We're going to see how many we have against Chelsea [in the Community Shield].and in what condition they will be, we will see. "It's as simple as that".

It was Salah that chipped a ball into the box, in injury time, in a move that led to Liverpool's winning penalty.

Mane stepped up to send Joe Hart the wrong way and give Klopp's team the win.
