Jamie Carragher may raise eyebrows among Liverpool fans as he claims Manchester City are the best team in Europe.
It is not what you would expect our former vice-captain to say, but he did. According to Jamie Carragher, Manchester City are the best team in Europe.
Not Liverpool. You know, the team that has won the competition six times. No, the team that just manages to only win the domestic cups.
I think City are the best team in Europe & LFC a very close second! Winning the CL doesn’t mean you’re the best in Europe as it’s a cup competition & there’s no way we were the best in 2005!!!!! https://t.co/cyHCk2EqqE

He has made a such a ridiculous statement, its actually funny.
How does winning the Champions League not prove your the best in Europe? You are literally up against the biggest clubs you can think of. The whole point of the competition is for the your team to compete until you win/eliminated.
Winning the Premier League just proves you are the best in England. Do you really think fans of the La Liga or the Bundesliga care that City won it?
No, because their teams wouldn’t even be in it. It wouldn’t even be on their radar. The Champions League is where it matters. It’s the one place where your team makes a lasting impression on the world.
It’s actually quite insulting as a Liverpool fan really. Our team had to battle some of the hardest teams last year; we had to fight PSG, Bayern Munich, FC Porto and Barcelona to retain our position as European champs. Even in 2005, we made one of the greatest comebacks ever.
But to Carragher, it’s like that doesn’t matter to him.
I don’t care what he says, Liverpool are the best team in Europe and will be unless someone else wins the competition. I won’t accept his statement until Manchester City have won the competition.
The way they just played against Norwich, it won’t be anytime soon.
