Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says it is the responsibility of Liverpool to protect his team’s bus.
Objects were thrown at the City coach ahead of the Champions League quarter final first leg played at Anfield last season and it saw much outcry from the Premier League champions and their fans.
But the Spaniard doesn’t feel that his club need to take precautions as they travel to face Jurgen Klopp’s side on Sunday afternoon in the crunch fixture.
“It is something for Liverpool, not me.” he said.
“The best way to protect the bus is for Liverpool fans to go into the stadium.” he added.
And the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss went on to say that he didn’t think that the bus should need to be protected anyway.
“Why do our fans have to protect our bus? Are you kidding me? We shouldn’t need the police to protect the bus.” he continued.
Guardiola was more positive when it came to assessing the threat posed by Liverpool as the two unbeaten teams come head to head for the first time this season, following four clashes last year.
“They have a lot of weapons to attack you.” he said.
“They are masters at taking advantage of your mistakes. They are a top side and a good contender.
“They deserve all the credit they get.” he finished.
