Pep Guardiola. Lionel Messi. Xavi.
It was just a few of the names that were present that night in 2010.
It started when also on schedule for the mighty FC Barcelona, when Lionel Messi made it 1-0 after 31 minutes.
But just a minute after getting Claudemir the non-existing tag in the Park to facilitate the care, as he scored to 1-1 to the great jubilation of the 37.000 spectators who had gathered.
Pep Guardiola had big roses to spare for the FC Copenhagen and the crew subsequently. Especially FCK’s physical constitution was something he noticed.
“It was a good fight, and I must hand out praise for F. C. Copenhagen. We played even an exceptionally good 1. half-time, but I must also say that I in my 2½ years as the coach of FC Barcelona, have not met such a physically strong team like F. C. Copenhagen,” said among other Guardiola back in 2010 at the subsequent press conference.
Pep Guardiolas stars should then also end up winning the tournament back in the 2010/2011 season with a 3-1 victory over Manchester United at Wembley.
