2020 was a weird year, and football was affected by its weirdness. However, we watched enough football, that i can go on this newest episode of the pitch side podcast and try and figure out the highlights and lowlights of the year in what I can call “2020 FOOTBALL REWIND”. And despite the mixed bag ,there was still enough highlights and lowlights to make a short episode like this one.
The highlights include Bayern Munich all conquering side, who stomped their way as the best in the world. Also, Liverpool winning the PL title finally after 30 years of wait, which was almost cancelled for a moment. AC Milan were also one of the big winners of 2020, resurging under the leadership of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
THE “2020 FOOTBALL REWIND” can’t be without lowlights. They involve the likes of Barcelona,. Schalke 04,who had a crisis both on and off the pitch. Moreover, the passing of numerous legends like Bap Diop, Gordon Banks, and of course Maradona. They involve also the effect of the pandemic itself on football.
