Hello sports fans all over the world, and I’m back with another edition of my column which I wrote on the two Spanish giants that featured in the 2016 UEFA Champions League final; Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid”
The world you are in is actually a true hell. The journey to truth itself is what quickens the heart to become lighter. The lighter the heart, the purer it is.
The purer the heart, the closer to light it becomes.
And the heavier the heart, the more chained to this hell it will remain. A few years back, things looked so bad for the Coach of current Champions League side Real Madrid; Zinedine Zidane. That was after his last World Cup appearance when it seemed his world had crumbled.
But today, Zidane is being celebrated after he guided Real Madrid to capture the prestigious Champions League trophy.
However, the 2015/16 Champions League has come and gone but the tournament leaves back a wonderful memory of the two Spanish giants; Real Madrid and Athletico Madrid. Interestingly, the epic final match ended in a score draw and they had to go into extra time before settling the final score with penalty shootouts.
Although, Real Madrid came out victorious, I am however happy for both coaches, Zidane and Simeon. They are ex players and have registered their names in the greatest book of cup competitions in the world; the champions league history.
I’m particularly happy for Real Madrid handler Zidane. The past has been there all along, reminding us: This time, maybe, hopefully, against all odds, we will get it right. He was a great asset, a great player in his time; but ended up those blissful year in a disheartening act in the World Cup that cost him his carrier. But now it is a different ball game entirely.
There are times in our lives when we have to realize our past is precisely what it is, and we cannot change it. But we can change the story we tell ourselves about it, and by doing that, we can change the future.
I believe the past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfillment in whaterver form. Both are illusions after all.
For great goals always come through inspiration, once again, congratulations to the two Spanish teams. And, a special congratulatory message to Zidane, because you have won the Champions League as a player, as an assistant coach and now as a coach.
