In an interview yesterday, Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder echoed the sentiments of his former manager Jose Mourinho by claiming the Champions League generally offers up ‘far better’ football than the World Cup:
“So far the favourites didn’t show what they are capable of and only Germany really impressed. Besides that I enjoyed watching countries like North Korea and New Zealand playing their games, but then you realise the Champions League is far better.”
Mourinho made similar comments last month, prior to Inter Milan’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich, saying the final was “the most important game in the world… even bigger than the World Cup.”
Here’s an interesting question… if you had to save one of the two competitions from being scrapped, which one would you choose?
