Champions League anthem lyrics revealed – and they’re not what you expect

The Champions League is back! Woooooo!

Europe’s elite will resume hostilities in the world’s most prestigious club competition this evening with Tottenham vs Inter Milan and Barcelona vs PSV Eindhoven kicking things off at 5.55pm.

And, with the Champions League’s return, comes the return of everyone’s favourite football anthem.

Don’t pretend you haven’t sat in front of your television, perhaps with an ice-cold Gazprom, and belted out: "The champiaaaaans!" at the top of your voice.

But, sadly, when the lyrics to the anthem are fully translated, they are somewhat less rousing and less inspiring than you might expect.

They read:

They are the best teams,

They are the best teams, The main event,

The master, The best,

The great teams, The champions,

A big meeting, A great sporting event,

The main event,

The master, The best,

The great teams, The champions,

They are the best, They are the best,

Theses are the champions,

The master, The best, The champions.

So there you have it. Sorry if it’s been ruined for you.
