Today’s back pages: Eden Hazard’s out the door, Ban City and Brighton rocked
A round up of the sport headlines from UK newspapers on 14 May
The news that Manchester City could face a one-season ban from the Uefa Champions League is the major story in today’s newspapers.
City, the newly-crowned Premier League champions, have been investigated by Uefa over alleged breaches of Financial Fair Play rules.
A report by European football’s financial control body allegedly recommends a Champions League ban of at least one season.
The Times leads with “City facing European ban” while The Sun’s back page headline reads “Ban City”.
Brighton & Hove Albion’s sacking of manager Chris Hughton is another major story hitting the headlines.
The Daily Telegraph says Brighton are “rocked” after Hughton’s brutal firing while the Daily Express calls it an “axe shock”. The Seagulls are looking to act quickly and are lining up Swansea’s Graham Potter as their new boss.
Hazard’s final match?
The Uefa Europa League final is expected to be Eden Hazard’s last match for Chelsea.
The Blues face London rivals Arsenal in Baku on 29 May and once their season is complete Hazard looks set to sign for Real Madrid.
Metro says Hazard is “out the door” after Chelsea’s Europa bid and the Belgian will be unveiled as Real’s next Galactico. The long-running saga will conclude with an £86m transfer on the cards.
