All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from the Etihad...
The Guardian reports that UEFA’s disciplinary board will meet tomorrow to discuss the potential punishment for the alleged racist chanting suffered by Manchester City’s Yaya Toure during their match against CSKA Moscow.
The hearing will look at evidence submitted by both sides and will then decide if the Russian club’s ground should be partially closed for their next Champions League group match against Bayern Munich.
Should the club be found guilty, the debate over the severity of the punishment will surely rage on.
The centre-back finally made his debut for the Blues in last weekend’s defeat to Chelsea, and he has since said, “I have a lot of ambition, and have not come here to take a secondary role. I want to be part of the team and am confident I will do it.”
And finally, on what is clearly a slow news day, the Daily Mail reports that City manager Manuel Pellegrini has been denied swift access to a local golf club.
The Chilean is said to wish to join the exclusive Hale golf club but has reportedly been told to bide his time on the waiting list like everyone else.
Like I said: a slow news day...
