The Spanish Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola lost the chance this Saturday to equalize with the Englishman Bob Paisley, the Italian Carlo Ancelotti and the Frenchman Zinedine Zidane, the coaches who have three European Cup / Champions League titles.
Paisley was crowned with Liverpool in 1977, 1978 and 1981; Ancelotti with Milan twice, in 2003 and 2007, and with Real Madrid in 2014; and Zidane with the Madrid team in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Guardiola, who as a player won the ‘Champions’ in 1992 with Barcelona and As a coach he achieved it in 2009 and 2011 with the Barça team, He lost this Saturday the chance to add a third as coach at the head of City, who fell in Porto against Chelsea.
The game of chess, the meeting of strategists, the battle of slates was decided by a spark. A masterful pass from Mason Mount to Kai Havertz that destroyed the hopes of being champion of Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City and placed the second Champions to the showcases of Chelsea (0-1).
As if it were the 2012 final, Chelsea re-emerged as underdogs to surprise and rely on the drawing of Thomas Tuchel, the genius of his young people and the experience of the captain to conquer the second Champions League and deny Guardiola a honey that has been resisting him for ten years and that he will have to continue chasing with a first-time City that is not adapted to these games.
