Better Than The Champions League

BY @iTz_Renato

One memory? Well, there are a lot of great ones but one is particularly special. I'll never forget it. It was the day we won the league at White Hart Lane. As I’m Brazilian I can’t go to every game, but in 2004 I was there.

The sheer relief when the final whistle blew was amazing; you could literally feel everyone start breathing again! We may have lost a two-goal lead on the day, but watching the Spurs fans hail their point just made us laugh even more. It was an amazing feeling celebrating with the players. 

Of course it was the second time we’d won the title on their ground, Arsene’s third Premier League success in total and we were on the way to an unbeaten season.

As Thierry Henry once said: "For me, winning the Premier League at White Hart Lane was better than winning the Champions League." I could not agree more.

If you’d asked me to choose between winning the league at Spurs in 2004 or winning the Champions League against Barcelona in 2006 – I’d choose the former every time. Many won’t agree, but for me it was that special.
