On Saturday, after the Premier League match at Etihad Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw, Nunez got into a heated argument with the manager of City. This prompted Klopp to step in and guide Nunez away from the situation in order to prevent it from becoming more serious. A number of other coaches also stepped in.
On the other hand, Klopp does not consider this to be an indication that the rivalry between the two teams is growing. He emphasized that there is not an underlying hostility, but rather intense emotions between the parties involved. In his remarks, he emphasized that the incident that occurred after the match does not reflect the intense historical rivalry that exists between the clubs.
He made the statement, “It is not about animosity between us; it is about emotions at this point.” There is no hostility; rather, there is a spirit of competition. There is no connection between the intense competition that we have had in the past and what took place after that. That is probably not something that Darwin Nunez is familiar with.
Despite the fact that he was not personally involved, Klopp expressed his efforts to bring stability to the situation. He emphasized that situations like these arise as a result of the desire to win, and he shared that both Guardiola and Nunez were dissatisfied with the outcome, which led to tense emotions.
In general, Klopp is of the opinion that there is no fundamental problem that needs to be resolved, and he attributes the incident to the feelings that are associated with playing competitive football.
