Former Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal believes Liverpool and Manchester City are the best team in Europe at the moment.
In an interview with the BBC where he talked about his tenure as United manager and the fall out of his sack despite winning the FA Cup. the former Bayern and Barcelona manager candidly touched on many subjects, including his successor, Jose Mourinho and current manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Regarding the best team in Europe, he said while many think Barcelona are the best in Europe, it is indeed Liverpool and City who are the best on the continent, and should be favourites for the Champions League.
“People think Barcelona are the best but they are not. Manchester City and Liverpool are more of a team than Barcelona – and Liverpool are more of a team than City,” he says.
“In my philosophy the best team shall win but I hope for City because they play the best football.”
