Slowly and steadily, we’re getting to the business end of the football season – at least in the European part of the world. Everywhere you look now in Europe, especially in the top five leagues, it’s either about the title run-in or about cup tournaments reaching the knockout stages.
While some other clubs are trying to avoid relegation, some others are still very much in contention for as many as three, four titles this season. There are many factors that can help make a team either as successful as the Guardiola machine or struggle like the Metz’s and Malaga’s and West Broms of this world.
Asides the coaching staff and the kind of management a club has, the caliber of players in a squad also determines how successful a club will be.
With each transfer market, players either go out on loan or make permanent moves. Clubs are always trying to let the deadwood off and reinforce by bringing in the best talent. If the right moves are made over time, a club ends up having a great squad that wins a lot of trophies.
That being said, we’d like you to imagine as many clubs in Europe as you can. By all means, think as deeply as possible. Which one do you think has the best set of players in European football?
A lot of options may come to mind. And it may be a little bit hard to pick one… or maybe not?
For some, it may be Real Madrid. The current Champions League winners may not be having the best of forms at the moment but it’s hard to look past a team that has the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in its setup.
If it’s not Madrid, it may be Manchester City for some others. Pep Guardiola’s side has only lost twice in all competitions this season. With a squad that has Kevin de Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, and co. it’s no wonder they’re still in contention to end the season with four trophies.
PSG splashed the cash over the summer. Now they have a forward line that includes Neymar Jr, Edison Cavani and Kylian Mbappe. Barcelona has Lionel Messi, Phillippe Coutinho amongst others. Bayern Munich has Robert Lewandowski, and Neuer.
For some others, it may be Tottenham, Manchester United, Napoli, or even RB Leipzig. Why not? These clubs are still competing either in the UEFA Champions League or the UEFA Europa League. And only the best play in these competitions.
The title of this blog post is relative. Of course there will be different opinions and different answers. And that’s we’re asking you. So, what do you think? Which of the clubs in Europe currently has the best set of players?
