ITS YOURS! Lescott Predicts The Club To Win The Champions League This Year

Former Manchester City defender, Joleon Lescott has backed Pep Guardiola’s side to win the UEFA Champions League trophy this year.

Lescott believes Man City can win the Europe top-flight competition this season ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid because Guardiola’s men are presently wiser than before.

The ex-centre-back told Love Sport Radio:

“I hope they [Man City] can do it [win the Champions League this year]. It’s hard to say if they really will but experience helps, and they’ve got a lot more experience now. They’re older now, they’re wiser, and that experience really helps.

“We’ve certainly got that ability – there’s some real quality in that squad, and they’ve been so close for the last couple of years. I hope we avoid English opposition, but I think City can mix it with the very best”.

“Teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona will fear Manchester City – and with good reason.”

Manchester City will take on Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 first leg tie on February 26 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
