CRUCIAL WEEK: In London, Owen Gibson wrote "standing alone among 236 clubs" is how Man City is "likely to be characterised" by UEFA if they fail to agree to the sanctions. It is "not exactly the image" Sheikh Mansour "was hoping for" when he bought the club five years ago and "promised to make it a footballing powerhouse." It leaves title-chasing Man City "facing a crucial week both on and off the pitch" (GUARDIAN, 5/6). In London, Oliver Kay wrote "there is certainly plenty to be said for a regulation that clips the wings of City and Paris Saint-Germain," but only if that comes as part of a wider campaign "to address the terrible inequalities that have built up in European football during the Champions League era." UEFA has permitted, a landscape in which, for example, Greek and Scottish football are dominated by one or two clubs, but in which Olympiacos and Celtic, or indeed Benfica or Ajax, have little prospect of competing with the ruling elite in the Champions League (LONDON TIMES, 5/7).
