I’m sure we’re all agreed that Lille should be punished in some way for their part in last night’s Champions League tie with Man Utd. Neither their players, coaching staff, fans or the authorities at the ground (which was actually Len’s stadium, not Lille’s) covered themselves in glory.
I don’t think Uefa will chuck them out of the competition, but nor do I believe that they should be thrown out. If it was my decision, I’d fine Lille Â£50,000 and quietly tell them that if anything like that ever happens again, they’re headed for a two-year ban from European competition.
