The draw for the groups of the Champions League confirmed the composition of the final phase of the maximum continental competition and, with it, a debate that converted Susana guasch in ‘trending topic’. In the Movistar + program that she conducts, the journalist slipped a ‘stick’ to Pep Guardiola but he met the harsh aftershocks of Jorge Valdano, Julio Maldonado ‘Maldini’ Y Axel Torres.
The comment that sparked the rain of zascas against Guasch came when the presenter referred to the group of Manchester City and affirmed that Guardiola “goes from failure to failure” for not having won the Champions League in its stages in the Bayern Munich and the City. Valdano was the first to come out in defense of the Catalan coach by assuring “you will not confuse Guardiola with a loser not? at this point in life … “.
The former Argentine soccer player and analyst recalled that “he has 25 titles, what else do you want him to win? There are people who win the League and end up firing the coach“he continued.
The thing did not end there, since, while Guasch tried to defend his position, Valdano listed clubs that spend the same money as City and they don’t win the Champions League either, so “in that case 25 teams would fail every year”.
The journalist also found no support in ‘Maldini’, who recalled the Champions League is a competition “of the greatest of the elites that can only win one“and noted that the word failure is used too lightly“.
Axel Torres was also against Guasch’s words because the fact of considering that not winning the Champions League is a failure “depends on the expectation of each… winning the European Cup can never be a requirement. “
‘Maldini’ wondered “what is Guardiola’s fault that Sterling throw a ball over the crossbar from the line and they end up eliminating you. Soccer has a number of accidents or moments or details that run away from the coaches. “
