Juventus and Italy great Alessandro Del Piero has revealed why he thinks Jurgen Klopp is a better manager than Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola’s City side pipped Klopp’s Liverpool to the Premier League title on the final day of the season after cruising to victory at Brighton after a first-half scare.

However, speaking to Sky Italia, Del Piero praised both managers but then explained why Klopp is his man.

“Klopp or Guardiola? Let’s take both of them to Italy. Guardiola has taught many, he has inspired so many players. We are talking about two managers with different personalities, let’s say Klopp is more a coach of the future.

“His attitude towards the media in more or less difficult situations proves it. I remember how he faced the post-Champions final. Usually one is always quite angry after losing a final, but he dealt with it all everything differently.

“I must say that this attitude has given a different freshness and his team proves it. They have energy and enthusiasm. With all due respect to Liverpool, there are not only big stars, we can certainly say that Klopp has improved many of them,” he concluded.
