Roberto: “Manchester United Are Better Than Barcelona”

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez believes Manchester United are better than European Champions Barcelona.

Barcelona are regarded by many as the greatest team in recent history after their dominance in Europe and La Liga, combined with their majestic passing football.

However, despite their accolades in recent years the Latics boss feels United have the edge of their Spanish counterparts. He told talkSPORT:

“In many ways they (Manchester United) are better than Barcelona – that’s just down to the mentality, the belief and they way they approach games.

“What Barca have is the way they play the game, they are very unique, you won’t see another team in world football that will rely on 900 passes to win the game. The pattern of their play is impossible to compare.

“But United have a blend and mentality in the squad that is the best in world football. It’s just a matter of beating a team like Barca in a one-off game and see who can be European champions, as I believe they are on a different level than anyone else.”
