Ghana legend Abedi Pele expects Barcelona to emerge victorious again in this year’s UEFA Champions League.
The Spanish giants produced an excellent display to beat AC Milan 4-0 on Tuesday to progress in the competition.
The Catalan giants were trailing two nil from the first leg but a brace by Lionel Messi and one each from David Villa and Jordi Alba reminded the doubters of their evergreen prowess.
And Pele who won the prestigious tournament with Olympique Marseille in 1993 beliefs Barcelona can once again reign supreme.
“I wasn’t surprised at all (about the impressive win over Milan). A team that always wins trophies will continue to win trophies,” he said.
“But sometimes as players you lack the desire to win after winning everything and you could see they lost some games in some weeks.
“And people started talking but the team has been at the top for the past five six years.
“It is the same generation from the Ronaldhino time and they’ll remain a threat in the competition.”
