Liverpool fans disagree with Pep Guardiola over defender comments

Premiership Picks

Pep Guardiola has called Aymeric Laporte the best left-sided centre-back in the world, a remark which many Liverpool fans strongly disagree with.

Although not all of them have directly stated it, the reason seems to be fairly obvious, as Virgil van Dijk – the recently crowned UEFA Men’s Player of the Year – plays on the left side of Liverpool’s centre-back partnership.

Both players were included in the 2019 PFA Team of the Year as they helped their side keep 20 and 21 clean sheets in the league respectively.

They have continued where they left off last season and Laporte’s form has earned him his first call-up to the France national team, but despite his progress Liverpool fans still disagree with Guardiola’s verdict on the former Bilbao star.

Indeed, some have reacted humorously to Guardiola’s suggestion, whilst others have called him deluded or simply disagreed.
