Nasri and Torres Are Finally Vindicated!

And so the season finally ended. It was a season filled with drama, with more ups and downs for all clubs than in any previous season. Who would've scripted a more dramatic end to the Premier League title race? The excitement involved is what makes the Barclays Premier League the best league to watch.

What struck me most was that two of the Premier League's best players finally achieved what they had wanted in English football and that is to win titles and medals. The moves were controversial and the separation acrimonious but now with titles won, both players' actions can be considered justified.

Samir Nasri left Arsenal at a time when they needed him most, and also at a time when Arsenal were not in a position to challenge for any titles. The Arsenal fans did not take kindly to him leaving and he was vilified for leaving the Emirates. And now with the much dreamt about Premiership title under his belt, his actions are vindicated. His first trophy turned out to be the coveted Premier League trophy, making him a League champion. Something not even Steven Gerrard can claim to be.

Similarly, Fernando Torres' desire to win trophies drove him towards Chelsea. Though his time at Chelsea has been turbulent to say the least, he has finally won a trophy at club level. Something which has eluded him throughout his club career. The fact that he is now an FA Cup AND Champions League Cup winner fully vindicates El Nino. Finally, Torres has covered himself not only with international honours but now also club glory. As a footballer, that's really all that matters, not money but trophies.

Both players have achieved the highest accolade possible in club football. Who's to say that footballers are all about money, I doubt Torres and Nasri were thinking about that when they joined their new clubs.

I think that it is great that this season was so great because when teams have their ups and downs it makes the league more interesting.
