Alot of people have idolized the UEFA champions league has the hallmark of football… Then why do we have other competitions like that of CAF and the Asian champions league. It is high time other continents begin to raise awareness of the presence of their competitions and make them matter.
The money factor is another thing that makes the European leagues very popular. It is high time other leagues stepped up their games and begin to encourage foreign investors to take the leagues to the pinnacle.
I dream of a Balloon d’Or ceremony where we would have the 3 finalists from different leagues and continents around the world.
Not just Spain and Europe.
