Football and the business of Football has taken centre stage

Football and the business of Football has once again taken centre stage this summer, both on and off the pitch.

Europe once again the focal point in terms of transfers and trophies.

David Garrido, Sky Sports Presenter, explained how this has "started off and on the pitch with Real Madrid becoming the first team to successfully defend the Champions League and it ended with the Netherland ladies becoming the European Champions for the first time on home soil".

Alongside this, England youth teams have proven their potential by successfully winning the u19 Euro's, the u20 World Cup and the Toulon Tournament, however the England u21 team was beaten by Germany on Penalties during the u21 Euro's.

Garrido also explained how money has been spent in even more vast quantities than ever before.

 "Manchester City and Manchester United have spent a combined figure of £375 million in this summer window"

"Does that amount guarantee success?/"

"This is football which thrives of its unpre­dic­ta­bility, is there another surprise package, another Leicester City?".
