Man Utd boss Ferguson: Champions League better than World Cup

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson rates the Champions League as a higher standard than the World Cup.

"I think it is better than the World Cup now and has been for some time," Ferguson says. "The Champions League gets better each year, whereas World Cups are not what they used to be. You have to go back to 1986 in Mexico to get a real sense of what World Cups used to be like. Or the one before that, in Spain. France and Brazil were both knocked out by the semi-finals that year, that shows how high the standard was. They were two of the best teams ever."
