Manchester City legend Mike Summerbee has welcomed the present of a place in next season's UEFA Cup with open arms.
Confirmation that the Blues will be back in European competition for the first time in 24 years came from UEFA headquarters in Nyon today after
England were declared winners of the Fair Play table.
It meant City, the highest-placed team in England's Fair Play league not to have already qualified for Europe, enter the UEFA Cup qualifying round in
The news, which had been widely anticipated, raises the prospect of the first competitive game in City's new Eastlands home being in European combat,
with the first leg pencilled in for August 14, two days before the new Premier League campaign is due to start.
That is well lucky,its their 1st season in the premier league they manage to stay up and now they get into europe via the backdoor.lol ...Everything
aside well done to them its good to see other english sides in europe other than the top ones..
