PORTO: Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel are in Porto as anticipation rises for Saturday’s all-English Champions League final in the Portuguese city that was picked as a last-minute host.
It’s the third final of Europe’s top club competition to include two Premier League teams, and the second in as many seasons, demonstrating the cash-rich English game’s power.
And these are the two clubs whose changes under mega-rich foreign owners over the previous two decades have had the greatest impact on the Premier League’s landscape.
The west London club had a head-start in terms of becoming big-spenders and as a club they have the experience of this stage in Europe before, having beaten Bayern Munich on penalties on their own turf in the 2012 final.
They have also won the Europa League twice since then.
City, though, have never made it this far but are finally here, after 13 years of enormous investment from the Gulf and four previous years of disappointment.
Porto is one of the most lovely final host cities, with its cobblestone alleys falling down to the shoreline, which looks across the Douro River to the Port wine warehouses on the other side.
On Friday, English supporters began to congregate on cafe terraces beneath dazzling blue sky. The Estadio do Dragao has been allowed to be filled to 33 percent capacity by Portuguese authorities.
Many more people are likely to show up in the city without having purchased tickets.
Cops in Portugal have described coping with such a large influx of English fans as “a really sophisticated operation.”

Khatija Lokhandwala, Head Marketing, Zivame, said, “Break the mould is a Zivame trademark and thus organizing a Fashion Show featuring real women showcasing intimate wear is par for the course for us.

“I have never you know used that abuse at all in my life and I will not repeat it” says Manoj Bajpayee on cursing in The Family Man 2
Actor Manoj Bajpayee will star in the second season of The Family Man, and there’s something about his character Shrikant Tiwari that he doesn’t understand. Manoj recently spoke out about Shrikant’s potty mouth on the show and how one particular swear word surprised even Manoj.
Shrikant and his wife Suchitra (played by Priyamani) are seen at a couple’s therapy session in the show’s preview. He begins dishing out Bollywood dialogues and finishes it with swear words that had to be beeped out, fed up with people using metaphors for his situation.
Manoj told Mumbai Uncensored that the amount of swearing in the scene is not something he is used to in real life. “Woh jo jeeta wahi sikander, uske baad joh gaali aati hai, woh zindagi mein kabhi use nahi kiya, woh gaali sach mein itni gandi lagti rahi ki pata nahi kaise muh se mere woh organically nikla,” says Shrikant Tiwari. “It’s such an obnoxious swear word that I’m not sure how it came to me so naturally. It just happened organically because I was immersed in Shrikant Tiwari’s character the entire time. Sh*t yaar yeh loge yahi rakhenge, yahi rakho iske alawa kuch nahi rakhna hai.” In the interview, he said, “These people will use it. All this and nothing else”
Despite his reservations, Raj and DK were eager to incorporate it into the show. “Exactly this happened; I spoke to Raj and DK, who said, ‘No no, it’s looking fine, it’s superb,’ before jumping, ‘no no, don’t change this violence, this is brilliant, this goes with Shrikant more.’ I’ve never used that kind of violence in my life, and I won’t do it again because social media is such an evil platform, and you never know when it’ll come back to bite me” he said. Shrikant will face new obstacles and villains in the upcoming season. Samantha Akkineni, an actress, is also a part of the second season, which will premiere on Amazon Prime on June 4th.
