Ex Bayern Munich player, Altintop has come out to say that Manchester City are favorites to win the UCL this season. He recently revealed that he was very happy with the draw because it really excites football fans.
According to him, Manchester City are a team of quality, and they should be feared in the competition because Pep is really looking forward to winning the UCL with the club.
He added that Chelsea should not be written off as well because Tuchel is a decent manager that never reveals what he is thinking.
His words, “I’m very happy with the draw!”
“I think every football supporter likes these kind of games, and should be excited for them.”
On Real Madrid, “They are a team with quality,”
“But not the big, creative quality they had some years ago with Cristiano and [Angel] Di Maria.”
“Real has a different strategy now. They still have great players with [Karim] Benzema, [Sergio] Ramos, Thibaut Courtois. They have great midfielders with [Luka] Modric and Toni Kroos, playmakers with high quality and experience. But you miss a little bit in the front.”
On City, “I think that they are the favourite,”
“Pep Guardiola has won every trophy except this one with them, so for him it will be extra special.”
“He was always criticised for not winning the Champions League, and maybe he deserves it this season. They are favourites, or at least one of the two favourites!”
“But don’t forget Chelsea! They are going well with their new head coach, eh? Thomas Tuchel is a great manager. He has that poker face. You don’t know what he’s thinking. He’s the opposite to Jurgen Klopp, who is very emotional. Tuchel, he is harder to read.”
