Liverpool's Klopp to put players through 'preseason' ahead of Champions League final

16 May 2019

A video began to circulate on social media on Tuesday appearing to show City employees singing an alternate version of Liverpool's "Allez, Allez, Allez" chant while on a plane after beating Brighton and Hove Albion 4-1 on Sunday to clinch the trophy.

And, in a further case of unwanted publicity for City, footage emerged of some players apparently singing a derogatory song about title rivals Liverpool as they celebrated on Sunday.

UEFA are reported to be preparing to throw them out of the Champions League for a season.

UEFA opened an investigation into alleged financial irregularities at the club earlier this year.

If this is true, they should be punished.

They report that although all three players sat out the final match of the Premier League season against Everton, they are expected to return before that crucial meeting with Liverpool in Madrid.

Among them is Rick Parry, chief executive at Liverpool from 1998 to 2009 and former Premier League chief executive.

The club also faces investigations from other sporting bodies over its financial dealings, including the Football Association, Fifa and the Premier League.

"Hopefully we will be here for many years and we will be a better team in terms of maturity and experience next year". We know who couldn't hack it.

Making the Champions League final two years in a row is incredibly impressive, but everyone is itching for the side to go one step further and actually win the thing now.

According to Transfermarkt.de, a German website specializing on football transfers, Manchester City's transfer balance since 2008 is -$1.36 billion, outstripping even that of Qatari-owned Paris Saint-Germain by more than $400 million. Will anyone still be interested in watching the Premier League aside from their relatively modest fanbase?

Fining a football club that has unlimited funds is pointless, but threatening them with points deductions would certainly focus their mind and maybe the only way to encourage them to change their ways.
