Martinez: Man Utd a better team than Barcelona

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez believes that Manchester United are a better team than Spanish giants Barcelona.

Barcelona defeated United in the Champions League final but Martinez says Sir Alex Ferguson’s side can still prove that they are the best team on the continent.

Martinez 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.”
