Six Big-Name Managers Who’ll NEVER Win The Champions League, With Arsenal, Man City & Barcelona Bosses
Arsenal transfer news


1) Luis Suarez

Back on English soil and back amongst the goals, Luis Suarez’s double for Barcelona against Manchester City could prove crucial for the team in this season’s competition, and it may well be the start of a fine run of form for the Uruguayan, who has been somewhat slow to get going since quitting Liverpool for the Nou Camp in the summer.

2) Luis Enrique

A manager under pressure who managed to get a big result. Coming just days after a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Malaga, Barca played with the  style and confidence that we are so used to seeing, and the win at the Etihad Stadium could buy the Spaniard a bit more time to put his stamp on this squad.


3) Chelsea

Far from at their best, but with a hard earnt draw and a crucial away goal, Chelsea will be delighted with their work so far in the Champions League knockout stage, with a place in the quarter-final looking more than likely now for Jose Mourinho’s side.

4) Cristiano Ronaldo

Another goal, another win, another night of records. Cristiano Ronaldo helped Real Madrid to a 2-0 win over Schalke, making it 12 consecutive away games on the scoresheet for him in Europe, plus his 76th European goal to put him level with Lionel Messi and Raul.

5) Dimitar Berbatov

Another former Premier League star who found joy upon returning to these shores, Dimitar Berbatov showed his class for AS Monaco with a crucial and well-taken second goal in the 3-1 win away to Arsenal – one of the shocks of the competition so far this season.
