FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi says that the Big Four of the Premiership provides the biggest challenge for them in this season’s UEFA Champions League.
Barca are into the last 8 of the competition this time around and so are the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea. While Messi, easily the best bet to become Diego Armando Maradona II, doesn’t rule Barca out of contenstion, he does confess his fear for the Premiership sides.
Manchester United and Milan are very good; Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka are great players who I watch a lot.
The other top English teams – Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool – are capable of success too, because they have special players like Cesc Fabregas, Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres.
The best Premier League clubs also have the experience of doing well in the Champions League.
Indeed Barcelona are the only club who can actually challenge the Premiership sides for this season’s Champions League trophy.
