Man City left ‘baffled’ and “a little bit surprised” by Jurgen Klopp’s latest comments.

City chief hits back at Liverpool boss over spending claims.

Manchester City have revealed they were amazed at Jurgen Klopp's claim that Liverpool do not live in the same transfer 'fantasy land' as the Premier League champions.

Man City's chief operating officer, Omar Berrada, said they were shocked at the German's statement earlier this week as he suggested that Barcelona, Real Madrid, City, and Paris Saint-Germain are on the same level when it comes to squad investment.

"It looks like there are four clubs in the world who can do it constantly. Madrid, Barcelona, City and PSG. You cannot compare that," Klopp said.

However, Berrada has labelled the Liverpool boss' comments as 'curious' - adding 'the reality is that all the top clubs invest as they see fit'.

"We were a little bit surprised," Berrada said as quoted. "Liverpool are a great sporting rival.

"I don't know why they would make these comments. I don't know why they would look at other clubs. It's not frustration or anger, we just find it curious that they'd be highlighting our spending.

"We're fine with their spending.

"The reality is that all the top clubs invest as they see fit. Saying us, PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona always invest £200million is not correct. We don't look at what others do."

The Champions League holders have signed two players - Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott - so far, while the Citizens captured midfield ace Rodri from Atletico Madrid for a club record fee.
