Legends like Maradona, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Steven Gerrard, Kaka, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff and Ronaldinho have warmed the turfs with their boots to compete in this tournament.
Trophy of the highest calibre
Champions League trophy is a symbol of the highest achievement in football. Though each nation has its domestic league, a club’s proficiency is measured by its Champions League performance. For example, the defending English champions Manchester City were defeated by Chelsea in the Champions League final. This brought immense praise to Tuchel and his men, more than Guardiola got for triumphing in the league.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and Juventus president Andrea Agnelli announced that twelve clubs will break away from the Champions League and create a new European Super League. The clubs in contention were Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and AC Milan. The format of the proposed league shocked fans and critics and hinted at a football monopoly. Fans of Manchester United got to the streets and crowded inside the field before a Liverpool game. In few days, all the clubs withdrew one by one suddenly.
