[OP-ED]: La historia de Cenicienta continúa

 03/17/2017 - 16:34
El sorteo ha deparado que el Leicester se mida al Atlético de Madrid en los cuartos de final. Por supuesto, el equipo español es favorito. Pero Simeone y compañía harían bien en no confiarse. Hasta que caiga derrotado definitivamente en la Champions, la historia de este pequeño club inglés, Cenicienta del soccer europeo, continuará viva.   

Había una vez un club humilde ubicado en el centro de Inglaterra que, a pesar de contar con más de cien años de existencia, malvivía en la Football League Championship del soccer del país, luchando más por no caer a la división inferior que por ascender a la soñada Premier League.

The Champions League had never experienced a round of 16 week as the one we just witnessed. There were plenty of emotions started by the two goals headed by Sergio Ramos that qualified Real Madrid for the quarterfinals. Anyway, nothing can be compared with FC Barcelona’s amazing comeback against Paris Saint-Germain, the largest in European soccer history as no team had made it to the following round after losing 4-0 the first-leg game.

La Champions League jamás había experimentado una ronda de octavos de final como la protagonizada esta semana. Hubo muchas emociones, iniciando por los dos nuevos goles de cabeza de Sergio Ramos que dieron otro billete al Real Madrid para la siguiente eliminatoria. Sin embargo, nada es comparable a la apoteósica remontada protagonizada por el FC Barcelona frente al Paris Saint-Germain, la más grande en la historia del soccer europeo, ya que un equipo jamás había superado un duelo a dos partidos tras perder el primero por 4-0.

Despite being over 50, I can say I have never seen a team play a more beautiful soccer style than FC Barcelona in the 2010-2011 season. Managed by Pep Guardiola, that squad took to perfection a horizontal passing game that was named by the late sports announcer Andrés Montes as “tiki-taka”. As an ice hockey team, Barça put its opponents in their defensive zone, incorporating men little by little, passing and passing and passing again the ball.

Aunque tengo ya más de 50 años, me atrevería a decir que jamás he visto desplegar sobre un terreno de soccer a un equipo un juego tan preciosista como el exhibido por el FC Barcelona en la temporada 2010-2011. Entrenado por Pep Guardiola, aquel conjunto llevó a la perfección un ataque maravilloso a base de pases horizontales, al que el desaparecido locutor Andrés Montes bautizó como el tiki-taka.
