+++ May 28, 2021: Guardiola expects an exciting Champions League final +++
Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola is expecting a tight Champions League final against Chelsea. “It will be about the momentum,” said the Spaniard during a press conference on Friday. “Everyone wants to win.” The final on this Saturday (9 p.m. / Sky and DAZN) should be “good advertising for football”. He knows exactly what he will say to his professionals, said the Cityzens’ master coach around the German national player Ilkay Gündogan.
Guardiola also emphasized again how comfortable he felt at the top English club. “I have everything, I couldn’t ask for more,” said the 50-year-old. He knows that he will be “fired” if he no longer wins. “But I am fired in all friendship,” said the successful coach, who had extended his contract in Manchester to 2023 early last year.
+++ May 13th, 2021: Champions League final moved to Porto – London contrite +++
The relocation of the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea from Istanbul to Porto caused disappointment in London on Thursday. Until recently, government officials had negotiated with the European Football Union UEFA to play the game in London’s Wembley Stadium. But the talks apparently failed because of the country’s quarantine rules for officials, media representatives and sponsors. Officially there was no reaction from the British government, but behind the scenes the dissatisfaction was clearly palpable.
The decision was made by UEFA, but since it was a purely English final and Turkey was classified as a high-risk area, it was made clear that they wanted to support the fans as much as possible, government circles said on Thursday. They will now work with UEFA, the Portuguese government and the clubs to ensure that fans can safely participate.
With Wembley and Hampden Park in Glasgow, two British stadiums are planned to host the European Football Championship, it said. They look forward to showing that the UK is one of the best locations to host world-class sporting events.
+++ May 10th, 2021: Talks about moving the Champions League final to London +++
In the discussion about moving the Champions League final from Istanbul to London, there should be a timely decision. Representatives of the British government are expected to speak to the European Football Union UEFA on Monday, the PA news agency reported. A decision should then be made within 24 hours. Accordingly, UEFA demands a guarantee of quarantine-free entry for its delegates as well as journalists, media and guests of honor. For the game on May 29, only the Wembley Stadium in London comes into question in Great Britain, where at least 22,500 spectators should then be admitted. The BBC reported that clarity should be achieved by Wednesday at the latest.
The British government put Turkey on a “red list” of countries from which direct entry into the United Kingdom is prohibited. Brits and residents in Great Britain must be in hotel quarantine for ten days at their own expense after they return home from these countries. The British government had emphasized that fans of the English first division clubs Manchester City and Chelsea, who face each other in the final, are not allowed to travel to the final venue Istanbul. Great Britain is “very open” to host the game in their own country.
Another obstacle so far is that the play-off for promotion to the Premier League is scheduled for May 29 at Wembley. According to the BBC, the responsible soccer league EFL has already shown willingness to postpone the game.
So far, two games have already taken place in front of an audience at Wembley, but with a maximum of 8,000 spectators, significantly fewer fans were allowed than the capacity of the arena with 90,000 seats actually allows. At the European Football Championship in summer, several games are to take place in Wembley, then with up to 45,000 spectators.

Chelsea FC coach Thomas Tuchel expressed his confidence ahead of the Champions League duel at Real Madrid on Tuesday. “We have now played some games at the highest level because we are playing in the most demanding league in Europe,” said Tuchel, who had beaten their direct rivals West Ham United for a place in the Champions League in the English Premier League on Saturday . The 47-year-old therefore spoke of a “good time” for the semi-final first leg in the premier class.
“The best way to go into a Champions League match is with a decisive win behind you,” said Tuchel before the match in Madrid. However, he warned against too high expectations. “The level is so high in the Champions League semi-finals. We shouldn’t expect crazy things from us, but the same at the highest level,” said Tuchel. “Maybe we don’t have a little experience for a semi-final, but we’ll compensate for that with hunger and enthusiasm.”
Chelsea and Real Madrid were among the clubs whose plans for a European Super League had caused trouble. Real President Florentino Pérez blamed the Londoners for the failure because Chelsea were the first club to refrain from doing so. Tuchel no longer wanted to talk about the matter. Real coach Zinedine Zidane was also tight-lipped. “We’re going to play a Champions League semi-final and we just have to think about it,” he said on Monday. “You shouldn’t talk about the rest.”
In terms of sport, Real Madrid has not always been able to convince at the national level. “We struggled and were always able to get things back on track,” said Zidane defiantly. In La Liga, his royal team occupy second place in the table, so everything is open. “We still have one month of competition ahead of us and we will fight to the end no matter what.”
