Andy Cole, 51, who played for Manchester United from 1995 to 2001 and played for Manchester City in 2005-2006, said that the current Citizens team is in no way superior to the 1999 Mancunians.
“Calling Manchester City the best team in the history of the Premier League right now is a total disrespect for Manchester United, especially from people who have not been in such a position. It can be stated that many people hate Manchester United because of its success. You have to give Man City credit if they win the treble, but that doesn’t make them a better team than ours.
I would not change any of our players for a Man City player, it would be disrespectful to my comrades. Besides, we are still the only owners of the treble.
Man City spent a lot of money to get to this level, while Manchester United had six pupils. It speaks for itself,” Cole said.
Manchester City won the English Premier League for the third time in a row this season and became the owner of the National Cup. On June 10, Pepe Guardiola’s team will play Inter Milan in Istanbul in the Champions League final.
