Those who haven’t won the UEFA Champions League (UCL) have been highlighted in a different way.
Football statistics outlet TransferMarkt compared the four biggest stars without a UCL trophy to Phil Foden’s son Ronnie Foden on Saturday. Born in 2019, Ronnie is Foden’s first son and shares the same name as his great-grandfather. Foden has always spoken of his admiration for his grandfather, Ronnie Foden, and chose the number 47 shirt in honour of his grandfather, who passed away at the age of 47.
When Manchester City lifted the Big Ear (UCL trophy) after beating Inter Milan 1-0, Ronnie was in attendance at the victory celebration. This is where the ‘transfer mark’ came in, comparing the Big Ear to those who hadn’t won the UCL. It’s not a serious comparison, it’s a humorous comparison, and it’s a light-hearted one. Harry Kane, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gianluigi Buffon and Cesc Fabregas were compared to Ronnie, who was born in 2019.
Kane is a legendary Tottenham Hotspur and England striker who has broken countless scoring records, but no trophies. He even challenged for the UCL title but was denied by Liverpool.
Zlatan has been called a championship hitman and has won numerous trophies. He went on to play for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, LA Galaxy, Manchester United, and more, but never in the UCL. He announced his retirement at the end of this season, ending his career without a UCL title.
Buffon tried to win the UCL title three times, reaching the final three times and hanging his head in defeat on all three occasions. His lack of a UCL title is the only blemish on a career that has been called one of the best Italian goalkeepers of all time. 메이저놀이터
Fabregas played for Arsenal, Barcelona, and Chelsea, where he was known as a passing master. He won a lot of trophies with Barcelona and Chelsea, but not with Arsenal. However, he won zero UCL titles.
Four players who are considered legends have also failed to win the UCL. Fans are reacting to this rather cruel and humiliating comparison.
