Klopp praises Salah after forward scores first goal after two minutes

Manchester City fought back from two goals down to secure a 3-2 win in Pep Guardiola's first clash against former club Bayern Munich on Saturday in the International Champions Cup.

Mane stepped up to send Joe Hart the wrong way and give Klopp's team the win.

Salah was introduced as a second half substitute in Liverpool's International Champions Cup clash against City in the United States and the 26-year-old levelled the scores nearly immediately before forward Sadio Mane scored the victor.

City had Bravo to thank moments later when the veteran Chilean goalkeeper got down low to prevent Robben from netting a brace and that spurred the Premier League champions, who reduced the deficit on the stroke of half-time via Silva.

"It's incredible what we have done", Guardiola said. I'm here, I'm part of the team, I'm part of the squad.

"I'm so proud and happy to be manager of these guys for that reason".

And Bayern somehow took the lead against the run of play two minutes later after Rafinha's cross was emphatically headed past Bravo by 19-year-old Shabani. "All I can say is that I signed for City and it was the best decision I have ever made in my footballing career".

The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany, Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Sergio Aguero have enjoyed extended breaks following the World Cup. ". We have to enjoy our football, otherwise it makes no sense".

Manchester City and manager Pep Guardiola had shown their human side in how they treated the situation with premature birth of David Silva's son Mateo, the Spaniard reavealed in an interview to The Daily Mirror.

"It was a great experience for them to be here and to have minutes and pkay against some of the best teams in the world". That is a good example for the club. But we are going to adapt.

"It's going to be very hard, especially this year with the big teams Man United, Arsenal, Chelsea spending lots of money to get very good players", Silva said.

"We have made one preseason and now we need another preseason before the start of the season".
