The wait for football fans will soon be over as the two largest football leagues, the Premier League and the Spanish la Liga kick off this weekend.
Looking ahead there are three favourites for the Premier League with Chelsea as European Champion’s and Manchester City who won the League last year. But even the Man City coach, Roberto Mancini, says that you can never write off their rivals at Old Trafford:
“United play for the title always for 20 years and even if we won the last Championship we can’t change this in one year. For this reason, I think that they are favourite for the title.”
After having the title snatched away from them in the final seconds of Man City’s last match, Manchester United will surely start this season hungry, and perhaps newly-signed striker, Robin Van Persie, will help lead them to victory. He said making the move was an easy decision in the end:
“I always listen in these situations to make a hard decision in your life. I always listen to that little boy inside of me and what does he want, and you know that boy was screaming for Man United.”
Meanwhile Real Madrid and Barcelona which ended last season well clear of the rest of the field look set to continue their dance at the top of la Liga in Spain.
Reigning Champions Real Madrid will start the season with the same squad which denied Barcelona a fourth consecutive league title last year.
Barca also have much the same squad so far, although after four successful years Pep Guardiola is replaced by Tito Vilanova as coach.
