Klopp was asked about the fact he has not been to Etihad Stadium to watch City. “I can see better from home rather than always standing up for selfies in the ground,” said the German.
He also praised City boss Pep Guardiola, his former Bundesliga managerial rival.
“Our teams are completely different from when Dortmund and Bayern played each other,” he continued.
“We know everything about how Pep played with Bayern but that is not important any more because it is different players and different systems. He was very nearly perfect with Barcelona. He had a big influence with Bayern and changed their style completely.
“He is an outstanding manager, 100%.”
Klopp denied newspaper reports suggesting Liverpool could sign Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23.
“Usually I don’t say anything about transfers but I will make an exception. Nonsense,” he said.
