“We need to do something or otherwise next year it’s going to be new players and new everything. Let’s be honest, with the salary of every player and the level of those players, 90% of the team are world class, then not to qualify from the first round of the Champions League would be a huge blow for the club – and for us as well,” Nasri said.

Great honesty, Nasri. City have never progressed beyond the last-16 stage of the competition and they could suffer a group-stage exit for a third time in four years if they lose and either CSKA Moscow or Roma win in the other group match.
