Many of them? 2 of them were bought for large fees.You’re having a ‘mare.
The wiki entry for La Liga conveniently lists the Champions since 2010:
Barca - 7
Real - 3
Athletico - 2
And Zidane won two of those leagues for Real. La Liga isn’t a two-horse race. And even if it was, that doesn’t mean he had a 50% chance of winning - that’s not how that works.
This thread is awesome. Accomplishments apparently don’t count if:
You spend money
Have good players
Manage a team that has won the title in the last ten years
I thought deriding Pep because he’s won only two Champions Leagues was odd. Now it’s not that impressive to win it three times on the trot - something literally no other manager has even come close to. Because he had good players?!?

Ferguson’s two Champions League wins featured some of the finest players I’ve seen during my lifetime. Many of them bought for giant transfer fees (Ferdinand at £30m would be over Maguire’s £80 in today’s prices). Do those trophies not count?
This is the thread that keeps on giving.
The rest are academy or absolute bargains.
