'Players Jealous Of Me Because I Worked Under Pep & Klopp'

A Premier League footballer believes a lot of players are jealous of him because he has had the privilege of working under both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.

The Highest-Paid Players In Europe Revealed

Before moving from Germany to England, 29-year-old Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan was managed by Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.

The Germany international played 117 matches under the now-Liverpool boss, but since his switch to the Premier League, he has made 149 appearances under Guardiola.

Gundogan believes a lot of players are potentially jealous of him due to his close relations with both managers, whom he considers to be the best in the game.

"They are the two best coaches in the world," he told Fantasy PL.

"It is a privilege that I trained under both.  

"I think there are a lot of footballers who are jealous of me because they didn't have that opportunity.

"Both have a place in my heart. Both have taught me a lot and are part of my success."
