UEFA distributed more money to Manchester City than ANY other club in last season’s Champions League, it has been revealed.
Despite exiting in the semi-final stage to eventual champions Real Madrid, City were handed a staggering sum of €83,853,000 by UEFA, with €46,921,000 coming from the market pool.
With Manchester United going out in the group stage, followed by Chelsea and Arsenal in the Round of 16, City were entitled to a bigger chunk of the market pool revenue. Progress to the quarter-finals (€6,000,000) and semi-finals (€7,000,000) also boosted the kitty.
Real Madrid received the second highest total (€80,067,000) but City pocketed €3.8 million more than the tournament winners.
