Former footballer (205 games with Liverpool, 72 selections for the Swiss team), coach in 2019 of Neuchâtel Xamax and FC Sion, Stéphane Henchoz chronicles international football in Le Temps
In England, Manchester City is a traditional club, whose destiny was turned upside down in 2008 with its acquisition by an Abu Dhabi investment fund. Like Roman Abramovitch’s Chelsea, he has gradually made his place alongside the great historic clubs of English football, the Arsenal-Liverpool-Manchester United trio.
City has been under the threat of another revolution for a week, a two-year suspension from all European competitions decided by UEFA for failing to comply with the rules of financial fair play. The club had been under the threat of an exemplary sanction for several years, for proven facts of cheating, which allowed him to poach the best players.
