“We enjoyed the feeling of beating the best team because Barcelona certainly are the best team.”
The above quote was offered by 33-year-old veteran England international midfielder FRANK LAMPARD of Premier League side FC CHELSEA in a recent published interview with respect to the approaching UEFA Champions League Final against German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in Bavaria this Saturday.
The only thing that is certain is that Frank Lampard must be completely unfamiliar with current events in the Spanish La Liga. It is, in fact, Real Madrid who just so happened to claim the domestic title for the 2011/12 campaign after finishing a full nine points ahead of “the best team”, FC Barcelona, in the standings. Furthermore, it was Los Blancos who confirmed their status as the champion football club in Spain this season by recently beating their arch-rival fair and square on the road at Camp Nou in Barcelona.
“Barcelona certainly are the best team”? … perhaps in all of Catalonia!
