Chelsea boss Sarri names Man City, 1 other top European club favourites to win Champions League

- New Blues boss Maurizio Sarri tips Juventus or Man City to win UCL title

- He feels both teams have what it takes to go all the way in the competition

- His side are campaigning in the Europa League having failed to finish among top four teams last season

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has tipped Manchester City and Juventus as favourites to win this season's UEFA Champions League title.

The Blues are campaigning in the Europa League this term after failing to finish among top four teams in the Premier League last season.

His side remain unbeaten in all competitions so far this season but are second on the EPL table with same points as league leaders, Man City.

The Mirror however report that the Italian born tactician claims both teams that won their various league titles have the chance to end up clinching the title at the end of the day.

In Italy, Juventus have no rivals and they are already running away with the league. And this season they can win the Champions League.

There are two candidates: Juventus and Manchester City. I have always thought that Guardiola’s team has matured for the final climb to the top European level. For me, it is a two-horse race.

Then we have to see how the Spanish are in March. Now they are a bit so-so, but the direction of the wind in the Champions League changes easily.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that Maurizio Sarri has stated clearly that his target is to be the Blues boss for the next ten years.

Since the creation of Chelsea, and also since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003, no manager has spent 10 years at the Stamford Bridge club.

In fact the longest anyone has managed under the Russian billionaire is Jose Mourinho in his first spell at the club as he spent three years and three months.
