Daily Express Claims Thaksin To Sell Squad; City Denies Story; City Awarded UEFA Cup Slot
In normal times, the big happy news for Manchester City supporters would be confirmation that the club will enter the draw to qualify for the UEFA Cup this summer, based on its position in the Fair Play Table. Sven Goran Eriksson, still acting as manager, issued this statement about the news; Sven’s probably pleased to have something to comment on other than his job or the Boro game on Sunday.
That piece of good news is partly overshadowed by an explosive story which ran in the Daily Express today claiming Thaksin has plans to put the first team squad up for sale, that players received letters criticizing their second-half of the season performances from Thaksin, and that John Wardle had apologized to the players for selling the team. Parts of that story matches rumours that have been circulating on the internet for a couple of weeks.
City however have issued a strong statement denying the story and threatening legal action.
Finally, City have named the squad for the “Super Match” in Thailand tomorrow. Three Thai players signed by City will start on the bench. The club also opened a store in Bangkok selling club apparel.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
