The Empire strikes back
We’re on the brink of giving the Champions’ League trophy, this time in Oporto. Also, this time a club made by a tycoon will receive it. One of which even paid to compete. That’s how UEFA sees fair-play: those who don’t earn enough to compensate their expenses must pay, spending even more, to compete.
