Manchester City watchdogs

Some anonymous English publication that I won't mention, The Sun, got busted for potentially publishing a horribly false story the other day.

The paper allegedly said Manchester City players all got some nice watches as a gift from the team ownership. The club was soon to refute the report:
Manchester City can confirm that the story in The Sun newspaper this morning claiming that our players visiting Abu Dhabi had been given expensive watches by Sheikh Mansour is a fabrication.

The club is pursuing the matter legally and will do so in the most robust fashion possible.
The link the original story on the website has been taken down.

Sounds like someone journalist is gonna get a talking to...
