Khaldoon: Man City and Liverpool the benchmark for global football


Manchester City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak has declared themselves the benchmark in the game.

Mubarak says the final-day 3-2 comeback victory over Aston Villa, which sealed the Premier League title by a point, was one of the more obvious standout moments from a season where, once again, City have competed with Liverpool for all the major prizes.

It is not a situation he sees changing any time soon.

"Liverpool are a team we give highest respect towards," he said. "As with any rivalry, like the one we have had with Liverpool, we have made each other better.

"We are the benchmark for global football."
