Over the past 10 years, there have been a whole host of new jobs within football. The talk about the money in football will always be a topic of discussion due to the way the money is distributed especially when it comes to grassroots football. One of the huge positives that money in football brings is the number of jobs that have been created. You don't have to be a player or a manager to earn a decent wage doing what you love.
This game was about to be an exciting one. It was a beautiful atmosphere in the Metropolitano stadium. You can hear the Liverpool fans chant their songs around the stadium. Liverpool were favorites coming into the game. Their type of football is great enough that they could expose Madrid like they did Barcelona in the previous Champions League semifinal. Madrid set their team a 4-4-2 which means their game plan is going to defend deep and possibly counter attack. Liverpool set up a 4-3-3 which is their usual lineup and their game plan always is press and attack quickly.

Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg tie between Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain looked to be heading towards a rather unexpected draw, when Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland thumped a long range effort into the back of the net to send the Westfalenstadion into ecstasy. Even experienced campaigners such as the likes of Paul Scholes would have been proud of a strike like that and it brought to the fore just how incredibly gifted this young man really is. 2-1 it would end to the German side, who looked to have the better of the Parisians for large segments of the much anticipated tie.
