Manchester City‘s owners are planning on sinking more of their endless wealth into the Premier League club, by building a state-of-the-art training complex for Pep Guardiola and his players in London.
Given the Premier League now has seven clubs who could be considered a ‘London club’, as well as several others relatively nearby, the Sky Blues are regularly making trips down south, and it seems they’re keen on having their own residence.
According to the Sun, the club’s hierarchy believe they would gain an extra edge over competitors by having their own base in the capital, and are willing to give the go-ahead for a multi-million pound construction.
Apparently, ‘Etihad II’, as it’s being dubbed, would be a small-sized replica of the club’s £200million training complex that opened in 2014, and it could include the luxury hotel facilities such as king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms and TVs.
When you consider the fact that a lot of preparation in the modern game is based around winning ‘marginal gains’, do you think this is a good idea?
