File under you couldn't make it up. G14 Elite club apologist and ill informed anti-City pontificator UEFA President Michel Platini has revealed an approach from Chelsea's owner...
In a laughable development, the selective in his warning targets UEFA leader has let slip that Roman Abramovich wants resurgent City's spending arrested. Funny old thing...
'City can spend £300m if they want to, but if they are not breaking even in three years then they cannot play in European competition' declared the all of a sudden again decisive when slagging City Platini.
Then, seemingly confused about any previous encounters with His Highness Sheikh Mansour he went on adding an impassioned description of Chelsea's formerly spendthrift owner into the mix:
'I haven't spoken to Manchester City about this and I don't remember meeting their owner but I'm sure I will. I have, however, met with Roman Abramovich.'
'He is a football person and is passionate about the game. He loves football. But he has come to me and said that we must do something about this. It doesn't matter if one team doesn't agree, because this is what the clubs want. I have spoken to Silvio Berlusconi at AC Milan and Massimo Moratti at Inter Milan, as well as Abramovich; all agree we have to do something. Abramovich, Berlusconi, Moratti, they do not want to fork out any more.'
It's as stunning as it is pitiful. So they're after desperately closing ranks then and it's clear that with every City signing or win, no matter who that is or who it's against, panic is setting in.
The message from the vast majority of Manchester City fans this morning will be bring on that homegrown player you want rule Mr. Platini.
