Die Meister! Die Besten! Les grandes équipes! The champions! The pinnacle of club football, the UEFA Champions League is where heroes are made and legacies enshrined. The seven-year period between the beginning of the 2007/08 campaign and the end of the 2013/14 campaign is defined by four men, but what makes this era so magical was the rivalry Cristiano Ronaldo shared with Lionel Messi. Both Ronaldo and Messi were on a level of their own and cemented themselves as two of the greatest players to ever play the game. Turning to the coaches, Pep Guardiola became the competition's Goliath figure, but for every Goliath, there must be a David. Jose Mourinho embodies David. He won the competition with Inter Milan in 2009/10, overcoming Pep Guardiola's Barcelona in the semi-finals against the odds. But while he only won the competition once during this period his finger-prints can be founds all over the winning campaigns of Chelsea and Real Madrid. Tactical innovation, fierce rivalries, and four all-time greats delivered an unparalleled era in football history. Dive into the nostalgia and nailbiting moments with contributions from some of the world's most respected football journalists, including Raphael Honegstein, Andy West, Phil Schoen, and Dan Levene. Joining our team of tactical experts are renowned tacticians Tobias Escher, Alex Delmas, Muddassir Hussain, and more. These are the Champions and this is their LEGACY.
