Manchester: the World’s Leading Football City? Almost!

When the euphoria for City’s European Cup success recedes…

Come on, how could they not win it with that sort of financial backing? So how comes Paris St Germain with similar backing (Qatar, not Abu Dhabi) and Mbappe and Messi haven’t? Neymar.

Manchester is home to the National Football Museum. In the metropolis we have the world’s best-supported club and the richest. Are we the world’s leading football city? Not yet. Although Manchester has become only the second metropolis in Europe with two European Cup winners, we’re still someway behind Milan. How ironic that Manchester has secured this honour by beating a Milan team! Yet Milan, the city has 10 European Cup wins to Manchester’s 4. So some catching up to do.
