Daily hails triumphant footballers with front page wrap

A regional daily has hailed a triumphant squad of footballers with a front page wraparound.

The Manchester Evening News paid tribute to Manchester City after the club were confirmed as Premier League title winners yesterday evening.

Man City’s triumph was assured after their cross-city rivals, and closest challengers, Manchester United were beaten 2-1 by Leicester City.

The wrap on today’s edition features 18 images of Man City’s players and their manager Pep Guardiola set against a sky blue background.

MEN editor-in-chief Darren Thwaites told HTFP: “Huge congratulations to City on another great achievement.

“It’s been a fabulous season even by the recent standards of Manchester City and we’ve had the opportunity to produce some brilliant back pages.

“Special thanks go to Chris Ostick and Justin Connolly for some outstanding creative treatment to showcase the great work of our football reporters.

“There’s much more still to come, with two European finals this month – City in the Champions League and United in the Europa League.”
