Speaking highly of Manchester City, Dahoud has afforded Pep Guardiola’s side the highest compliment of all, calling them the ‘Best team in Europe’.
In an interview with SPORT1, as translated and relayed by Sport Witness, Dahoud was quoted as saying, “I think Manchester City will win [the UEFA Champions League Final] in the end.

Manchester City will face Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea at the Estádio do Dragão in Porto at the showdown event of this year’s Champions League campaign on the 29th of May.
