Champions No10

Ronaldinho takes centre stage in Issue 10 of the official UEFA Champions League magazine, and Cristiano Ronaldo discusses the waves he is making with both club and country.

The UEFA Champions League semi-final first legs take place this week – and the latest Champions magazine captures the excitement of the competition and the stars who make the headlines.

Ronaldinho spotlight
Issue 10, on sale now, spotlights FC Barcelona's Brazilian forward Ronaldinho. In an exclusive interview, he talks about the pride he takes in his performances, his tips for this season's Champions League, his life outside the game and his hopes for the future.

Ronaldo's tricks
Portuguese wonderboy Cristiano Ronaldo is making a big name for himself, both in the national team and with Manchester United FC. He tells Champions there is no limit to his ambition – and warns that no one should copy his step-over trick. "Football is an art," he says, "and if you are an artist you don't paint a picture that someone has already painted."

Rivera's views
From the past, Italian midfield maestro of the 1960s and 1970s Gianni Rivera provides his fascinating view of the modern game, while Juventus FC goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon discusses his finest saves.

Best goals
Goals are the lifeblood of the game and Champions reviews the best 57 from the European Champion Clubs' Cup – screamers, mazy dribbles and overhead gymnastics. It also goes behind the scenes at the Philips stadium to witness PSV Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink preparing his team for a previous match on their way to a semi-final showdown with AC Milan.

Anchorman role
They say that anchorman is the toughest role in football, and Champions looks at the art of the defensive midfielder. In a revealing interview, Jean-Marc Bosman – the man who changed football's face in the mid-1990s in a historic court case – says he has no regrets about his action.

What the kids think
Children are the stars and fans of the future, and Champions canvasses the opinions of youngsters across Europe on how they perceive the sport. Meanwhile, Dutch legend Ronald Koeman reveals the soccer greats he would invite to his perfect dinner party.

A must for the fan
Add to that a wealth of statistics and the latest issue is a must for any football enthusiast. Issue No10 of Champions is on sale in the shops and at Europe's major football stadiums.
