Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, has lauded Pep Guardiola as the world's top manager. However, he will depart Anfield desperate to know if Manchester City have cooked the books.

Klopp will bid farewell to Anfield and one of the greatest managerial rivalries in the Premier League era when the Reds take on Wolves in an emotionally charged match this Sunday. During his tenure on Merseyside, Klopp has won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, two Carabao Cups, Club World Cup, European Super Cup, and the Community Shield.

However, as happened with Arsenal in the Premier League last season and potentially this term too, Guardiola's genius has denied him from winning so much more. Despite his admiration for Guardiola as he seeks a record fourth consecutive title, Klopp confesses he wants clarity regarding the 115 Premier League charges that continue to overshadow City's accomplishments.

He said: "Everybody knows about the 115 charges, but I have no clue what that means, I only know the number. Regardless of what has transpired at Manchester City, Pep Guardiola is the best manager in the world - and that's crucial.

"If you put any other manager in that club, they don't win the league four times in a row. That's down to him and his team. Does that mean they can do whatever they want? No. But I don't know what they did - if they did anything - and I'm not here to accuse them."

"We will see. Of course, I would like to know (if City are guilty) one day. Everyone wants to know. But I will be somewhere else. The quality of Pep makes the difference so I don't worry about these things. We will see. It's not my problem and I am fine with what we have and what we've achieved."

Klopp maintains his record as the only manager who has triumphed more against Guardiola than he has lost. Liverpool have finished second to City twice over the past eight years, both times seeing the title head to Etihad on the last day of the season.

In 2019, Liverpool's only loss was in East Manchester. Despite racking up a tremendous 97 points, they ended up second, missing the top spot by just one point.

Two years ago, trailing 2-0 against Aston Villa with 14 minutes of their last game remaining, City staged an incredible comeback scoring three goals in five minutes, breaking Liverpool hearts once again. Liverpool's title triumph in 2020 is the only time City have failed to win the title in six seasons.

Should they be found guilty of the charges, there has been talk that the club could be stripped of their titles, which could see last year's trophy retrospectively awarded to Arsenal.
