La Real Declares A State Of Euphoria

‘Here it is, this is it, the txapeldun team’. La Real settles in a state of euphoria after achieving the first victory in its history on a great European stage with a very young team with native overtones. The victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford introduced Imanol’s men to a new dimension, making them move on to the next screen, to being able to compete beyond the Pyrenees as well. What happened on Thursday before 1,000 ‘realzales’ who lived a glorious day, is a historic milestone, although it was not a final or a determining match. Nobody will forget it.

And not only was it commendable to win against one of the most powerful clubs in Europe -the second that has spent the most to configure its squad: 1,001 million euros-, it also turned out to be the way of managing it. La Real put the pike in Old Trafford with a team that had a very low average age of 24.3 years and ended up employing eight footballers -seven of them finished the game- forged in their quarry, of the 16 who took part. Evolution merges with tradition in a climate of ambition.

And he barely struggled against players for whom Manchester United paid between 60 and 100 million euros.

With the ’10’ injured, he has already completely changed the attack of that team that brought Gipuzkoa to ecstasy: For your, Isaac Y Januzaj they have left and Oyarzabal It has no return date.

They have come instead Cho, Kubo Y sadiq and, at least for now, Real has not deviated from its path. The game scheme is the other factor of change.
