With Manchester City set to face Leicester City in the penultimate game of the season, Jurgen Klopp has joked that he could withhold rent from Brendan Rodgers if they fail to do Liverpool a favour against Pep Guardiola's men next week.
Klopp rents his house from Rodgers, who the German replaced in the Anfield hot seat in October 2015. Liverpool and City are currently embroiled in a hot title race with only one point separating them with three games left to the end of the season. Klopp also comes up against former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez in the penultimate game of the season with Newcastle United still fighting relegation.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Huddersfield Town clash on Friday, Klopp was asked about the two former Liverpool managers who could have a say in the fate of the title, "One is still living in Liverpool (Rafa Benitez) and the other one is my landlord."
When asked whether he would withhold rent should Rodgers' fail to take points off City, Klopp replied, "Can I? In Germany, that's not possible but if it is in England then tell me! They have to do their own job themselves and we have to do ours. I really have no problem that. I'm really happy about the situation."
