The two finalists in the Champions League will be English teams. In addition, England was the only country that had all its representatives in the quarterfinals and three of them in the semi-finals to fight for the most prestigious trophy in the world at Club level. But if something have in common these equipments is not their style of play, or anything that has to do with what happens on the field. In the cradle of football, sport King has become a stranger to England business. Every weekend, the English cities are paralyzed to see their teams play. A football match achieved dimensions that other countries can see as bizarre, even exaggerated. The bars are filled with people, the streets are filled with fans who don’t stop singing, preparing for 90 minutes in which only will live by and for 22 players, a balloon and, sometimes, an inappropriate referee. As Bill Shankly, historical coach of Liverpool said: football is not a matter of life or death, it’s much more than that.
Could not be more correct your affirmation. English football is also a matter of money. Of the 20 teams that make up the Premier League (English first Division), 12 are controlled and managed by foreign capitals, including three of the four first classification, and successful so far in the Champions League. Chelsea was the pioneer. Russian Roman Abramovich, a very close to Vladimir Putin oil magnate, acquired the London computer by $ 220 million, and until this season, has spent 1.13 billion between signings, salaries and dismissals. Manchester United bought it in 2005 Malcolm Glazer, an American billionaire, owner of an oil company that bought from the Bush family, who later became a producer of oil and fish protein. In addition, it also controls an American football franchise. Since his arrival in Manchester, has aroused the ire of the fans: it has increased the price of tickets and has located in leadership positions to their children, whom the hobby has come to attack to see that your computer becomes another American franchise.
