Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes thinks Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp are the best two managers in the world.

Guardiola guided City to the Premier League title last term, pipping Liverpool to the crown by just a point – but Klopp‘s men went on to have their own success, winning the Champions League.

And now the Reds are currently eight points clear of defending champions City, with some pundits thinking the gap is already too much.

“I’d still say Pep Guardiola,” Scholes told BBC Radio 5 Live when asked who he believes is the best manager in the world.

“I know Liverpool are eight points clear and they won the Champions League last year, but they’ve not won the league yet!

“Jurgen Klopp’s a great manager, don’t get me wrong and the football they’re playing and the style of play is magnificent, but I’d still go for Guardiola after what he’s done.

“I’d have Guardiola as number one and Jurgen Klopp as a very close number two.”
