What is the price of the unusual majesty of Man City

The problem with Manchester City, Arsene Wenger`s vision, was not just that he had a seemingly slimming source of money. The problem was that City and she worked smartly. Oil and ideas. Money and quality, the former manager of Arsenal.
Wenger, of course, has spent much of his career in discontent with the ruthless transfer of football to the grip of oligarchs and plutocrats, leeward billionaire and state-owned investment funds;all this at the expense of old values such as sustainable development. Wenger, who first spoke of the idea of financial doping in sports, preached a sparingly glowing golden fever.
Finally, however, he did not even believe that City`s success could only be explained by their wealth. Indeed, all this could not have been achieved without the billionaires of the benefactor Sheikh Mansur bin Zayed al-Nahyan, but could not have been so complete if their spending was not so wise.
The most obvious indicator was on the pitch. Josep Guardiola`s team won the Premier League title last season with more points and scored goals than any other team in our time. And he did it in such a style, with such resignation that, as Gary Lineker said, all England would be forever grateful for Guardiola`s presence in her football. When the national team came to the semi-finals of the World Cup this summer, many gave it to the Catalan Specialist, at least in part, for his help in introducing a more modern approach to the game analyzed by 11livesoccer on the Island.

Outside the pitch, however, today`s City has also become a mirror and an example for many. City Football Group -;the parent company that owns the citizens and an interconnected network of clubs;was consulted by the Chinese Super League on how to manage its teams more sustainably. In the US, in particular, Major League Soccer took advantage of the enormous information database of the UK`s selection team to assess their potential transfers from the smaller European leagues.
Even Real Madrid -;a club more accustomed to lead, not to follow -;he was impressed by City`s model. People from the European leader told the club`s CEO, Ferran Soriano, that they could not copy this franchise model because it would harm Madrid`s prestige, but they still admired the concept. Like everyone else in football, they assumed that there was much more in the City than in oil -there was the kingdom and the ideas.
It seems more and more that this combination is just too high a bar for the rest of Premier League. Guardiola`s team has dropped just 4 points this season and remains on the track to equalize or even skip the spot from the previous league. He also entered Sunday`s derby with Manchester United as a hardcore and was a convincing winner after having been away for so long for the city`s rival shadow and was a solid outsider in these clashes. Last Tuesday, Guardiola was asked if Premier League would eventually suffer from the undeniable superiority of his team and said, `I do not know if this is a problem at all.
Such success in
