Klopp also gave his reaction to Liverpool's Champions League quarter-final draw against FC Porto, as he stressed his side's 5-0 away win against the Portuguese champions last season will not be a factor in this next month's tie.
The draw took place in Nyon, Switzerland, this morning (Friday).
The semi-finals will then see either Tottenham or City face Ajax or Juventus, and United or Barcelona play Liverpool or Porto. When they had a good team after a season they went all over the world. Ajax last won the Champions League in 1995, while Manchester United last won in 2008 and Juventus most recently won in 1996.
Ajax will believe in their chances, but Juve look too strong for the Dutch outfit, and they will be determined to avoid the same mistakes that led to Real losing their crown against the men, and boys, from Amsterdam.
"My job is to do everything I can to help the team that we can be as successful as possible". The game in hand for City is [Manchester] United, for sure not an easy one, but it is not decided at the weekend because of that.
Despite just a single point gap at the top of the standings, Manchester City remain -275 favorites to win the league while Liverpool are +225.
"Let's not disrespect Porto because they got to this stage for a reason, but they won't be looking forward to that tie".
Ajax vs. Juventus and Manchester United vs. Barcelona are at 3 p.m. April 10.
But Rio Ferdinand, the former United and England defender, claimed this week that Guardiola's reign "will be defined by whether City win the Champions League or not" and said it would be "frowned upon" if he fails to - a judgement the Catalan said he would have no choice but to accept.
Liverpool legend Steve McMahon has revealed that he would have not been opposed to the Reds being drawn to face Tottenham Hotspur in the last eight of the Champions League. They're now +28 units on the season while draws have dipped down all the way to -80 units.
"It [leaving] will cross his mind without a shadow of a doubt because he's done what he's set out to do went there".
