Manchester City couldn't show an effect like the last two seasons - llkay Gundogan

Manchester City couldn't show an effect like the last two seasons - llkay Gundogan

Manchester City midfielder llkay Gundogan has assessed the club's performance so far this season and believed they failed to match the standards of their previous season in which they won the Premier League title.

llkay Gundogan claim City dropped so many points this season which was the cause they were left behind by Liverpool who has a 25 point lead on the table.

As the Premier League prepares to resume on June 17, City will re-start the campaign knowing all that is left to fight is to secure a Champions League spot as Liverpool only need just two more wins to be crowned champions.

Speaking with Turkish publication Fanatik, Gundogan admitted Liverpool were on another level this season and that City are guilty of throwing away too many points.

'We were left behind in the championship race this season in the Premier  League. We couldn't show an effect like the last two seasons [when] we are champions.'

'Whether we play good football or play good matches, there are points we have simply lost. Liverpool came to this level without losing much points, so we lost a lot of points, so the difference increased.'

llkay Gundogan also tries to compare Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp two managers he has worked with. He labelled both managers the world's best teachers.

'Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are the two best teachers in the world. Four years have passed with Klopp. A teacher I love very much. It creates an amazing team spirit and motivates footballers incredibly. The teams he runs struggle a lot, he runs a lot.'

'Pep is at a very high tactical level. A teacher who wants to know every detail of the game. I have not seen a teacher who improved himself tactically.'

'Their styles are different, but both are very successful. Although they are very different, they are both the world's top two teachers for now.'
