After the Miracle
The hope for a miracle looms large over the 2019 UEFA Champions League final to take place early on Sunday 262019 Who would have thought that the final at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid Spain would be an all-England match between the two soccer giants Liverpool and Tottenham Hots
After they were bludgeoned 0-3 by FC Barcelona on May 1 in the first leg of the semifinals, no one believes that Liverpool can win the home match. “I don't gamble in football, I don't like gambling but I wouldn't bet one single coin on Liverpool in the final. Juergen Klopp has been in the club for three and a half years and has won absolutely nothing,” former Chelsea and Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho said after Liverpool’s painful defeat.
As it turned out, Liverpool brutally defeated Lionel Messi and his teammates 4-0 on their menacing home turf at Anfield. Mourinho then backtracked on his comments. “This comeback has a name: Juergen,” he said. “This is a reflection of his personality, of never giving up. [This was about] the fighting spirit, [in which] every player gave everything. I think this was not about tactics or philosophy, but heart and soul and empathy that led to the victory.”
