Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone says Manchester City are the best team in the world following Tuesday’s Champions League first leg tie at the Etihad.
City edged a stubborn Atletico side 1-0 thanks to a Kevin de Bruyne’s 70th minute strike. The Premier League champions had to labour for the win after being restricted to a handful of chances by a Spanish giants who defended for most part of the game.
And reacting to the loss, Simeone said in his post-match presser:“We didn’t play the way we wanted in the first half, we couldn’t break out.
“It was a bit better after the break, but City are the best team in the world. They have scored so many goals at home in the recent past.
“But this is half-time and let’s see how the second game goes in Madrid.”
