The draw for the Champions League has just been made. Real Madrid, the most successful team in the history of Europe will be coming to The Etihad to play Manchester City on November 21. What a day that will be. We never have played these Champions before. And the rest of our group shows why it is called the Champions League. We’ve drawn the toughest group for the 2nd consecutive year. As well as Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid managed by “The Special One” Jose Mourinho, we will be playing Die Borussen (the Borussians). Borussia Dortmund, the Champion of Germany, and Ajax, the Champion of Holland, a team that won the European Cup for 3 successive years under the great Johann Cruyff.

What a prospect in store; after 40 years of European drought, we get 3 champion teams in one group.

Real Madrid have won this trophy 9 times and it will be great for our team to test ourselves against the very best. This is what athletes and business people live for. To test themselves against the very best. We were made for moments like this.
