Never one to be backwards in coming forwards with his opinion, talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan has risked the wrath of Manchester City’s band of faithful followers with his latest diatribe.
Over the last decade, City have become the most successful club domestically in England, albeit they haven’t yet replicated that in Europe.
It was in the Champions League this week that a third of the stadium was empty for the visit of RB Leipzig, and that prompted a plea from Pep Guardiola for the fans to return in their droves for the next home match.
That in turn has seen Jordan question whether City are in fact the big club that they believe they are.
? “I thought big clubs filled stadiums.”
? “Pep’s used to Barca & Bayern; big clubs that haven’t been manufactured.”
