Bayern Munich and Chelsea emerged as the ‘Kings on Europe’, with the Germans winning the Champions League, and the Londoners winning the Europa League.
Chelsea, however, would of preferred to lift the ultimate crown for the second time in a row, but they should, and most probably are, grateful for winning a place in next season's Champions League.
A blind and deaf person could still feel the ripples of excitement that has already came into fruition in this summer so far.
The reappointment of the autonomous Jose Mourinho to Chelsea, the emotional departure of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, a most likely auspicious season for Bayern Munich after the appointment of ex-Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola, and finally, more added thunder to the Barcelona line-up in the likes of Brazilian Neymar (hopefully he lives up to his reputation).
There is no doubt that the current activity in the summer may produce a concoction of awe-inspiring clashes in the incoming season.
But if anyone wanted to show the symbol of what the beautiful game could be, they will be wise to put their money down on Chelsea versus Bayern Munich in the Super Cup.
Many are now comparing that this clash of the English and German titans as a live battlefield between Jose and Pep.
Mourinho, however disputed this claim on Chelsea TV by saying: "It’s not Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, it’s Chelsea And Bayern Munich."
He then went on to say: “ Mourinho did nothing to play this match, and Guardiola did nothing to play this match."
"The players did it, and the previous manager did it, so I will be in the match just by trying to help my club and my players win the trophy, nothing else."
Chelsea will arguably gain the king of country status next season, just as Bayern Munich has this season.
With ‘the Special One’ given a plethora of money, Chelsea may land a few top-class signings.
A striker? Maybe.
If Torres remains in his current form, then he may be given another chance, but if Romelu Lukaku impresses Mourinho, as he has impressed the Premier League with his prolific duties on loan to West Brom, well then Chelsea will be deadly up front.
Who will Pep capture?
It is still early in the transfer window,
What player would not want to play for Bayern Munich under the influence of Pep Guardiola?
