Gary Neville would rather play under Klopp than Guardiola

There have been many great managers in England during the Premier League years, but few doubt that Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are two of the best.

The fact that both are here, at their respective peaks, is like a fantasy for many and the results have been some of the best football we've seen from two English teams in recent memory.

Between both sides, they've amassed a ridiculous amount of points, winning every conceivable trophy (Europa League apart) between them during the last 4 years. But the big question for many, is who would you rather play for.

Both managers have starkly different styles, albeit with some similarities, and it's a question that many ex-players have been asked in recent seasons.

Answering the same question, Neville told Sky Sports: "I would probably say Jurgen Klopp.

"I just look at the way his teams play at the moment. They are adaptable, they do play with possession, but they also counter-attack and they are also competitive.

"They are not one trick ponies and I think it just looks like he is full of energy, belief and confidence.

"Always feels like he wants to attack, obviously other great managers in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola is one of the greatest managers of all time.

"But I feel Jurgen Klopp would be someone great to play for."
