Man City Manager Manuel Pellegrini Criticizes State Of CSKA Moscow Pitch
Published October 24, 2013
GOING GREEN: The London GUARDIAN reported CSKA Moscow has answered criticism of its pitch "by taking the only logical way out -- painting it green." CSKA has "sprayed the pitch with green dye in an attempt to cover up the sandy surface" (GUARDIAN, 10/23).
RACISM ACCUSATION: In London, Stuart James reported Man City captain Yaya Touré has called on UEFA to "take tough action against CSKA Moscow, including the possibility of closing their stadium for a couple of years," after sections of the Russian club's supporters subjected him "to racist abuse on Wednesday night." The "monkey chants," which Touré reported to the referee during the game, "overshadowed a crucial 2-1 victory" for Man City (GUARDIAN, 10/23).
