However, Manchester United lost to Spain’s Villarreal in a helpless appearance in the Europa League final. It was only 7th in the Spanish League and could not secure tickets to the Europa League next season. This is why the disappointment of the fans was greater than ever. Villarreal secured the right to advance to the Champions League despite La Liga’s 7th place with this victory.
Man City Pep Guardiola, 51, has no relationship with the Champions League.
Guardiola, a former football player in Barsercelona, Spain, took the lead early because of frequent injuries. In the days of Bayern Munich coach, he won the German Bundesliga. Also, although the victory rate was over 70% as the Command Tower of Man City, he still failed to raise the Champions League Cup. The resolution to face this competition was also very different.
For this reason, Mansour, the owner of Man City’s’Oil Money’, gave fans a charter to Portugal, where the game was held.
But Tuhel, 48, knelt in front of Chelsea coach. Tuhel led the PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) to the finals last season, but lost to Bayern Munich and stayed in runner-up. After leaving the PGA, he took over as Chelsea manager in January of this year and held the Champions League championship. At the time of his appointment, Chelsea was ranked ninth in the league, where it was also unclear to advance to the Euro League. As soon as he took over as Chelsea coach, he ran undefeated in 13 games and finished in fourth in the Premier League. Manchester City won the championship, and Manchester United took second place.
As a result, Tuhel even won the Champions League.
Chelsea defeated Manchester City 1-0 with Kai Haberz’s goal in the 2020-2021 season of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) final held on the 30th (Korean time) at the Estadio do Dragan in Porto, Portugal. As a result, Chelsea held the Champions League championship cup’Big Year’ in 9 years.
Manchester, who wanted two trophies to win the Europa League and the top of the Champions, was captivated by the vain defeats of Manchester United and Manchester City.
During the Bundesliga, Tuhel was no match for Guardiola. In Germany, they confronted six times and won only one win. In 2019, Klopp from Bundesliga, Germany, led Liverpool to win the Champions League. In 2020, Bayern Munich coach Pullich won the championship.
For this reason, the disappointment of Guardiola Man City was also great. All coaches who have won the championships in the last three years are from Germany.
