Chelsea, Arsenal both bigger than Manchester United, claims ex-France boss

Hugo Lloris should not move to Chelsea. He is a perfectly fine goalkeeper, but we already have one of the best in the world between the posts, and the club are looking for a backup rather than a pricy number one. There is no world in which it makes sense for Lloris to come to Stamford Bridge, and so we can't endorse former France manager Raymond Domenech's belief that he should.

Apart from the fact that he decided to be mean to Manchester United in the process.

I have no decision to take for him, but in my opinion he has to play in Chelsea, Arsenal, or Manchester City, to play in the European Cup. Tottenham is a big club – it is not the biggest. Manchester United qualified for the Champions League, but I can't really see the difference with Tottenham.

For me, it's Chelsea, Arsenal, or Manchester City. Because I think Manchester United is no more a big club, in England, for me. I think like that.

is Domenech overselling things a little bit? Sure. United are one of the biggest (and they're definitely one of the wealthiest) clubs in the world, and comparing them to Spurs is over the top. We're also not huge fans of Domenech, who has a history of clashing with Chelsea and Chelsea players. But is this still funny? Yes. Yes it is.
