Blanc: Man City the “guest club” of the UEFA Champions League semis
Man City fans will have a lot of fun with this one.
Paris Saint-Germain was dumped out of the UEFA Champions League by City on Tuesday, their 1-0 loss not enough to overcome last week’s 2-2 draw in France.
After the match, PSG boss Laurent Blanc proffered these sentiments on City’s advancement to a first UCL semifinal.
Guest club, eh? By that logic, PSG would’ve been the guest club as well. And certainly it feels a bit like sour grapes.
Thinking about it, don’t you think “Guest club” could go down with “Noisy neighbors” in the lexicon of City talk?
Certainly a headline of “Guest Club heads to UCL Final” would work for me, even if the Premier League powers are likely to be the underdogs in their semifinal.
