The season 2019-20 is just around the corner, and are not few those that expect with anxiety the return of the Champions. The big leagues will be an excellent appetizer for experts and fans, but the international championship raises passions and all have win to check if the Liverpool will be able to defend the title or will yield in front of some of his very powerful opponents.

The one who has thought on the subject in an interview conceded to 'France Football' is Louis go Gaal, that has taken advantage of to shoot against some technicians. The one of Amsterdam considers that the praises received by the Manchester City and the Ajax, two of the teams that better football practise in the old continent, are exaggerated, since they would have to demand more in question of results.

In spite of having done a plenary of titles in England, the Dutch has criticised to Pep Guardiola, to the one who does not consider a perfect trainer because it thinks that would have to improve his provision when it confronts to challenges of maximum level: "Win the English League for the second time is fantastic. Guardiola Won all what can win in England but the level more high is in the Champions and did not win it neither the City neither the Bayern".

"It is the consequence to be too concerned by how plays his team and no of his opponent.You have to respect to your rival", has explained, extending the reproach to one of his compatriots, Erik have Hag, one of the big managers of the return of the 'ajacied' to the fight by the titles and director of orchestra in a group that conquered the Eredivisie and the Glass of Holland and that tieed up recently also the Supercopa.

"Guardiola And Have Hag have teams of a lot of quality with regard to his national rivals but this does not apply to the Champions", has recalcado, insisting in that it does not suffice with being faithful to a style and some virtues because the opponents play directly to counter them. "When the Tottenham did changes in several parties, Have Hag did not know like anticipating although it occurred very closely", has signalled.

The debate on the City and the Ajax continues

Although it proceeds of the Dutch school, Go Gaal has gone back to put the focus on the debate that argues if the football of touch is effective or no to win titles. Groups like the FC Barcelona or the own City and Ajax have showed that it is more than valid to keep a successful path, although it has cost them keep his command in the Champions, where have escaseado his triumphs in the last seasons.
