Joleon Lescott has made a bold claim after saying that he would not pick a single Liverpool player for Manchester City’s team.
With Jürgen Klopp’s men and Pep Guardiola’s side locked in a heated Premier League title race, the former Wolverhampton Wanderers and City player has decided to spice things up with his comments.
Speaking to Sportingbet, the 36-year-old former defender was asked how many of Liverpool’s players would feature in City’s first team.
Well, Lescott was adamant that he wouldn’t pick any of them for the reigning Premier League side’s starting XI.
“Both Guardiola and Klopp will each be happy with their own team and their players suit their styles of football,” he said.
“I’m not sure I’d take a single one of Liverpool’s players for Man City’s team, but it’s fair to say both have put together great squads.
“From a Man City perspective, I have been very impressed with [Aymeric] Laporte this season, who has arguably made a similar impact to what van Dijk has at Liverpool.”
