Del Piero declares Man City (not Liverpool) will win Champions League

Juventus great Alessandro Del Piero believes Manchester City will win the Champions League this season.

Del Piero has backed Man City to claim Liverpool's Champions League title this season, as he thinks the Reds will be “busy with the league".

Speaking to ESPN, he said: “I still believe that Manchester City have a real chance.

“So many years they came close - VAR one year, VAR the next year and it didn't happen.

“I think we'll have a great idea after the next round.

“There are some changes, in the market and with coaches, some can make you better but most of the time nothing changes much.

Liverpool still have a big chance because I love Klopp and the way he manages the team.

“But I think they will be busy with the league."

Asked who he's backing to scoop Europe's top prize, he confirmed: “City - I'll go with City."
