Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has tipped Manchester City to win the Champions League this season, after Real Madrid were eliminated on Tuesday night.
Real, who have won the title for the last three years, were dumped out by Ajax, who won 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu and 5-3 on aggregate.
Speaking after the game, Ferdinand told BT Sports:
“In years gone by there’s always been a team who has stood out, this year there isn’t one really.
“Some are saying PSG, some are saying Juventus, some are saying Barcelona.
“I don’t think many teams will want to face our English clubs. We play fast, dynamic football.
“I wouldn’t want to play against Man City or Liverpool and I think City are my favourites right now.
“This tournament has opened up. It doesn’t matter who you get, you’re going to be facing real quality.”
