Champions No17

The Arsenal FC duo of Thierry Henry and Jens Lehmann talk to Champions, and the South American talents set to grace the FIFA World Cup in Germany are profiled.

Issue 17 of the official UEFA Champions League magazine, Champions, is a must for fans of European football as the UEFA club competition finals take centre stage.

Reaching the summit
We learn why Arsenal FC's France striker Thierry Henry has reached the summit of his art, and why his team-mate Jens Lehmann prefers to avoid making good saves. There are also interviews with the South Americans who will be gracing the FIFA World Cup in Germany.

Ancelotti's way
Following another impressive European run by Carlo Ancelotti's AC Milan, Champions profiles the coach who uses the vision he learned in Arrigo Sacchi's famous Milan midfield to devise his tactical master plans. Champions also reveals how Fernando Roig, president of the other losing UEFA Champions League semi-finalist Villarreal CF, paid relatively little money for a club with a tiny stadium in a town of less than 50,000 inhabitants, yet almost steered them all the way to Paris.

What Emerson has learned...
You could end up in an asylum playing for Brazil ... Juventus's classy playmaker Emerson explains how he got into trouble with parliament in 1998, and says he feels sorry for Milan legend Paolo Maldini. Rangers FC coach-in-waiting Paul Le Guen is a no-nonsense character. So are all his coaching staff, and pretty much everyone else in his corner of north-west France! Champions introduces the people who have helped Le Guen become Europe's hottest coaching prospect.

Olsson on club relations

UEFA Chief Executive Lars-Christer Olsson also talks to Champions about the current activities of European football's governing body, and in particular UEFA's relationship with Europe's major clubs. Champions magazine appears in English and is on sale in shops and at Europe's major football stadiums.
