The voices continue to be heard after Manchester City won the UEFA Champions League final. Josep Guardiola's side bounced back after a tough match and can now celebrate with their fans in the vicinity of Etihad Stadium.

For the other side of the city, though, it is a sad day to see their neighbours lift the coveted European trophy. As a result, Manchester United are already preparing everything for next season and the summer transfer window.

However, the club's historic ex-players have spoken out against these new champions of the continent. One of them is Dwight Yorke, the Trinidadian who was champion with Sir Alex Ferguson's side in the 1999 season against Bayern Munich in one of the most heart-stopping finals in the history of the competition.

Yorke, who spoke to The Sun newspaper, was not shy about saying that no City player could be in the team that is so important to Old Trafford fans. Not even the most talented ones like Kevin de Bruyne or Jack Grealish.

What the ex-historian said about Haaland.

Yorke emphasised 'but even Haaland couldn't play in our team', as he claims they were more physical men and had better technique. He believes the Norwegian striker is unique but the formation they had under the historic Scottish coach could not be changed just to fit the striker in.
