Bayern Munich manager, Carlos Ancelotti, has revealed that the return of some big English clubs to the Champions League will make it tougher to win.
The last English club to win the Champions League was Chelsea in 2012. Ancelotti believes the return of the heavyweights is sure to make it tougher.
Manchester United and Chelsea are back in Europe’s top club competition, and they could be joined by Liverpool, who must go through the qualifying stages.
“The Champions League this year will be more competitive because there are some really important English teams in the competition,” the Italian said on Monday.
“United, City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool- I think, and I hope, for Jurgen Klopp [Liverpool manager] to win qualification,” He said.
“The Champions League will surely be more competitive and more difficult to win,” He concluded.
Bayern Munich last won the competition in 2013, while Ancelotti guided Real Madrid to ‘La Decima’ a year later.
