According to Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, European champions Bayern Munich and French champions Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool are the only real threat in this season’s Champions League.
Ferdinand named Bayern Munich as favourites to win the Champions League and Liverpool as second favourites.
“I put Bayern Munich favourites, but I would have Liverpool close second favourites,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“It is great to see big teams are in there, the English boys are in there bar Manchester United disappointingly.”
He added: “But I think the English teams will go deep in the tournament, I think they have got some real quality, Bayern and possibly PSG are the only threats.
“If they [Bayern] don’t have injuries, I think they will go on and do it again, with the experience they have in that team and the explosiveness they have got in the wide areas.”
