  • Wed, 09 Jun 2021 13:27:40 +0000: Six English ESL breakaway clubs agree to pay £22m to grassroots causes - Manchester City | The Guardian
    • Clubs and Premier League settle on punishment payment
    • Sum is less per club than average squad member’s yearly salary

    The six English clubs who attempted to join the European Super League have agreed a settlement with the Premier League in which they will pay £22m between them to causes that support “the good of the game”. The sum is more than was agreed with Uefa in a similar act of contrition but still amounts to less per club than they would pay an average squad member in a year.

    A further agreement was struck on new rules to prevent such a breakaway from happening again. In future each club agreeing to enter a competition without the consent of the league would pay a fine of £25m and receive a 30-point deduction. Under the terms of the ESL, the six – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham – had planned to continue playing in their domestic leagues as well as in the invitation-only competition.

    Many great footballers are lost to the game before they are out of their teens. Their road to ruin seems always the same: full of potential, they rise through a club’s youth system and into the first team squad, where they experience something that happens to all people when they are truly thrown in at the deep end: they make a mistake. Then they make another, followed by a few more, and instead of experiencing compassion they find that at the crucial moment their coaches, the people who should be there to protect them, abandon them. It starts with an error and becomes a trauma.

  • Sun, 06 Jun 2021 23:01:52 +0000: John Stones: redemption season for City works in England’s favour - Manchester City | The Guardian

    The centre-back has proved his doubters wrong by helping Manchester City to another stellar season and retaking his England place would complete a remarkable turnaround

    This article is part of the Guardian’s Euro 2020 Experts’ Network, a cooperation between some of the best media organisations from the 24 countries who qualified. theguardian.com is running previews from two countries each day in the run-up to the tournament kicking off on 11 June.

    Had Euro 2020 taken place in the year that still figures in its title then John Stones would have got no closer to the tournament than watching it on TV. Harsh, but unquestionably true. It underlines the extent of the defender’s rejuvenation at Manchester City that, a year on, he is central to Gareth Southgate’s plans for England once again.
