Paul Scholes has revealed that he fancies Liverpool to win the UEFA Champions League
In conversation with Webby & O’Neill Youtube channel (h/t Liverpool Echo), former Premier League legend Paul Scholes speaks on Liverpool’s title chances and the difference between his former club and the Reds.
The Merseysiders have witnessed a change in fortunes ever since Jurgen Klopp has arrived at the club. He integrated these players into a squad whilst creating one of the most feared attacking trio throughout Europe. This Liverpool side have won a lot of plaudits by fans and experts ever since the German manager has been at the helm.
Scholes expressed his views on Manchester City and the Merseysiders:
“I think Liverpool or Man City will win it. As much as you don’t want to say it, they are the two teams that do look the best in the Champions League.”
The Anfield outfit have come a long way since Brendan Rodgers was let go of the managerial role at the Reds. That being said it took a lot of effort and careful long-term playing along with the owners to get to this place.
The former Red Devils player also compared Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team to fellow rivals Liverpool and Manchester City:
“That’s the difference between United and, I think, Liverpool and City. They’re much more aggressive and attack-minded.”
Manchester United had a spectacular transfer window with some big-name additions such as Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo as compared to Liverpool’s solitary deal for Ibrahima Konate. Despite these new arrivals the Red side of Manchester has struggled in the UEFA Champions League so far with a loss against Young Boys and a scrappy victory against Villareal. The Reds Devils haven’t managed to win a single trophy under Ole as the pressure keeps mounting for him to deliver some silverware as manager.
The 46-year-old former Manchester United player’s comments could be music to the ears of Liverpool and Man City supporters. Liverpool are currently sitting on the top of their CL group after two great victories against Porto and AC Milan. The Citizens had to endure a tough outing against Paris Saint-Germain in their last UCL match, but Scholes has backed them to get back up and compete for titles this season.
