Former Athletic Club coach Javier Clemente believes Bayern Munich‘s sextuple of the last couple of seasons doesn’t match Real Madrid‘s Champions League winning feat under Zinedine Zidane.
Bayern picked up their sixth trophy in the space of nine months on Thursday, beating Tigres in the final of the Club World Cup.
Earlier on Radio MARCA on Friday, Raul Varela posed the question of whether Bayern’s achievements were as good as Zidane’s three successive Champions League titles with Los Blancos.
“I think it’s more difficult to win three Champions Leagues, like Real Madrid did, than win a sextuple because we’re talking about three big titles,” Clemente told Radio MARCA.
“Bayern are the more powerful and stronger team.”
Clemente, who won the LaLiga title twice as Athletic boss, also commented on this season’s title race.
“Atletico Madrid will lose and draw games because they can’t win them all, but that’ll also happen with Barcelona and Real Madrid,” he added.
“I think Sevilla are dark horses because of their quality, but I don’t know if Lopetegui has a big enough squad.”
