Watch: Pep Guardiola offers to swap the Premier League title for Liverpool’s Champions league trophy. The hilarious request was made at the Football Writers’ Association awards.
A decade back, both Liverpool and Manchester City were languishing with no upward trajectory. Liverpool had a more successful history. However, much like City, they never looked good enough to win a trophy.
Cut to today and both sides now rule the Premier League with an Iron fist. City won the Premier League last season with 98 points while Liverpool missed out after ending their campaign with 97 points. However, The Reds ended their season with a 6th Champions league trophy to their name.
The only major trophy left for Liverpool to win now is the Premier League. The Reds have won several English League titles in the past but have failed to win one since its reincarnation as the Premier League. Manchester City on the other hand have won 4 Premier League titles with 2 coming on the Trot. However, they have failed to win a Champions league title despite investing heavily on the squad.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was present at the Football Writers’ Association northern branch awards on Sunday. While speaking on the occasion he sent out a hilarious plan towards Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. With both trophies on stage he joked:
“We really want this one (Champions League) and he (Klopp) really wants this one (Premier League), maybe we can swap?” “Man City are a rich club, maybe we can pay you for it!”
Guardiola added that he is getting frustrated by Liverpool’s ability to snatch late victories this season, something that they did again at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
After 13 games and 39 points on the table, Liverpool sit at the top of the table with an impressive 37 points. The only match they have failed to win in the League this season was the 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Liverpool now have two more points than Man Utd and Arsenal combined.
