Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes Pep Guardiola will aim to dominate English football after it was confirmed he will take over as Manchester City manager next summer.

City have announced that Guardiola will succeed Manuel Pellegrini as manager, with the outgoing manager keen to make the news public as he does not want to be distracted in his final few months at the club.

Klopp locked horns with Guardiola in his final two seasons at Borussia Dortmund and he is already looking forward to Liverpool v Man City games next season.

“He is one of the best managers in the world, no doubt about this," stated Klopp.

“He had two big, big clubs where he has worked at and now he will do his job at Manchester City.

“Pep won everything in Spain, nearly everything in Germany so I think he wants to win everything in England that is clear."

Former Man City manager Mark Hughes expressed his sympathy for Pellegrini, as he was sidelined for a high profile appointment in a similar story to his own sacking from the club back in 2009.

"It is a shame for Pellegrini because he has won trophies for Man City, which is what they demand," says Stoke boss Hughes.

"Yet when a manager of Pep Guardiola's calibre comes onto the market, a club like Man City feel they have to go for him."
