In 2003, Chelsea removed Makelli from Real Madrid and changed the history of both clubs.
The ChelseaIts opponent Real Madrid In the quarter finals Champions League, This Wednesday, contributed to the decline of the “age of galaxies” at the Santiago Bernabeu. Everything is for a business that does not involve a big name, but has a huge impact.
2003-04 at the start of the season Blues Bought – for only .8 16.8 million – The steering wheel is Claude Makélélé.
“He was the one who brought balance to our pitch,” former Merengu full-back Michelle Salgado told the “Galacticos” series. Available on Star +.
Seen as a small engine of the team, the Frenchman was considered an important part of a team that had many more star names like Zidane, Figo, Raউলl and Ronaldo Phenomeno.
“Run, help my teammates and fill in the blanks,” McKelley said.
Despite the status in the squad, the player was not a priority for President Florentino Perez, who wanted to get the most media-friendly team. Marketing management came to dominate the decision.
I see how much Manchester United Real representatives have benefited from David Beckham’s image. The Englishman was a celebrity in comparison to the great Hollywood actors and married the singer Victoria Beckham, who was very successful in the group “Spice Girls”.
Transfer gap, which seemed impossible, after a 2-0 defeat to United Arsenal In the house. Coach Alex Ferguson angrily kicked a boot inside the locker room, which hit Beckham in the face. The atmosphere between the star and the coach, which was already bad, has become virtually unbearable.
In mid-2003, Real’s managers met with United and signed the Englishman at a lower price than expected: 25 million euros. The arrival of this midfielder was announced before the last match La LigaWhich has caused a lot of buzz.
Signing, which further enhanced the club’s image worldwide, had serious consequences on the pitch. Shortly after the win against Bilbao to secure the title, there was a riot by the players against the management of the club during a party. Fighting led to the departure of captain Fernando Hierro and coach Vicente del Bosque – two-time champions Champions LeagueClub World Cup and La Liga.
“Made by the life cycle, but I think we were still in a winning position,” Vicente del Bosque said in the documentary.
The director’s decision has caused further outrage among the cast and fans. Portugal’s Carlos Quiroz, who was Ferguson’s assistant at Manchester United, has been named the new coach.
To cash in on the stars’ image, Real Madrid toured Asia in the pre-season. The preparation of the team was considered very bad due to numerous commercial commitments and long tours.
Even with so much money in cash, McElroy heard from the club’s management that the promised salary increase would not be met. The story will only change when Chelsea show that they are willing to sign him.
According to the midfielder, Real came to give the same value as the other stars, but by then it was too late. McLelly went to London.
With the steering wheel gone, the Merengu team has only won the Supercopa de Espana. He finished fourth in the Spanish Championship, was runner-up in the Copa del Rey and reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, being knocked out by the humble Monaco (the team that lost to Porto in the final).
The following season, more failures were accumulated. After being a machine for hiring other stars and dismissing coaches, the team will only return to winning ways in 2007.
Meanwhile, McElroy continues to move higher and helps Chelsea change their level in Europe. He was one of the pillars of the 2004 Premier League runners-up squad. In the next two years, led by Jose Mourinho, he won the English Championship twice.
In six seasons at Stamford Brigade, the Frenchman was runner-up in the Champions League in 2008 as well as winning other titles, such as the League Cup and the FA Cup, the year he moved to PSG.
