Let's get it right where we left off and close this issue with English scrimmage in the Eurocups finals, Liverpool-Tottenham in Madrid and Chelsea-Arsenal in Baku. Because, we said, the presence of four teams from the same country in the Champions League and Europa League finals respectively, happens for the first time in the history of the sport. The English do it with the incredible qualifications of Liverpool and Tottenham in the final of the stars, but also the Londreses Chesley, Arsenal in the final of the… poor, in the Europa League.
Remember, first, that in the last six years, only one English team has appeared in the final, and it was Liverpool who bowed out in the third leg of last year. It was 5's first time in that six year that he had taken the Spanish Eugene Cup (four for Real and one for Barcelona), and the other for Germany, Bayern. The six finalists also qualified for a Spanish (Atletico twice) an Italian (Juventus twice) and a German (Dortmund).
Even at the lower level of the Europa League, English teams were absent. Only two times in the last 16 finals has the trophy reached English clubs (Chelsea, United). Nine times he wrapped the Spanish flag, two Russian and Portuguese, and once celebrated Ukrainians and Dutch.
How did this happen and the Premier League clubs were able to put all their opponents out of the final? That what; Got the best footballers and coaches? Well, for some years the top guys have been working in England, but this year's 4x4 has not become the final two.
Manny Manny in the Europa League, the English gave more weight than before, after they were "forced" by a UEFA decision for the victory of the winner in the Champions League. It's easier to leave Zurich and Boavista behind than Liverpool and City. No;
In the Champions League, however, the explanation is different. And panic at the same time! The overcrowded schedule was a huge problem, with teams and players in other - big football - European countries enjoying their winter breaks and regaining strength before the big games in the final straight of the season. And in that part of the year when others take a breath, the English have always had the most difficult schedule of continuous fights at the festivities.
This year, Liverpool were eliminated early by both institutions of the cup. The "Klopp" took advantage of this and made a trip with his footballers to Dubai. During the two weeks of rest it took place obviously, the Reds are relaxed now that the wheel is turning. Am I Tottenham? From February he sold out the title fight and threw weight in Europe and kept it just in the top four in England. In the last 11 games, Pochettino has managed and put seven defeats on his balance sheet. And what; Didn't he achieve his goal? He wrote history since it was as strong as it should have been in the big semifinals with Ajax!
Management, gentlemen, management. Roster, forces, institutions. Choices. Which will probably be a little easier than the new league. With English football managers following the example of other Europeans, the season will end for two weeks in February. Here's to the winter break everyone was looking for in the premiere. Decision taken to bring English teams back to European attention. Simply put, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal have been catching up.
