It is indeed a sad thing that in the 2012/2013 champion league that a club is eliminated from the champion league after scoring twelve points. The position was so tense any club could be eliminated be out of the champion league. Here Borussia Dortmund won their match in the 85th minute in a score of 2-0. Arsenal lost their match with Napoli with a score of 2-0. So Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund qualify for the group of 16. And Napoli lost out and will now play in the Europa League. Another big club to be knocked out , and failing to reach the group of sixteen was the Italian giants Juventus. Juventus are winning the Italian title for the past three years. Juventus have also lost 30 million Euros , just for failing to reach the group of sixteen. The Napoli footballer Gonzalo Higuain wept openly , and said the result was not fair at all.
The Argentinean winger Erik Lamela was got as a replacement for Gareth Bale , who was sold to to Real Madrid for a world record of 86 million pounds. Tottenham Hotspurs paid A.S.Roma 30 million pounds for his services. But Erik Lamela has so far played only two games for his new club, and scored just a single goal. He is very keen to move to Spain and impress so that he will be chosen for the 2014 world cup in Brazil. Sheer waste of money, it also proves that even if you are got for a record price for the club there is no guarantee you will play a game.
Manchester United would always attract good footballers any time , and they would be willing to join the famous club. But not any more , as this year Manchester United , find themselves in very unusual ground . They now find themselves nineth in the table in the E.P.L for the year 2012/13. And it is usually the club that is on the top of the table at christmas wins the title, this year Arsenal are on top with a five point lead. So many players flatly refuse to join Manchester United and prefer clubs in Italy and Spain now.
There are many rich footballers in the E.P.L This is the list of the three richest ones. 1) Wayne Rooney. Manchester United. 45 Million Pounds. 2) Rio Ferdinand. Manchester United. 38 Million Pounds. 3) Frank Lampard. Chelsea. 29 Million pounds.
The French winger Franck Ribery who plays his club football in Germany with Bayern Munich, has now won the award for the French footballer of the year for 2012/2013. He says that he will be trying very hard to equal the record set by Thierry Henry , who was the award for the French footballer of the year five times. This is Franck Riberys second award.
