"As we are people of fair play, we have brought a bottle of red wine chosen from the year Benzema was born," he told The Sun.
"It's from 1987 - a very fine wine.
"Instead of buying Benzema, he will get a bottle of fine Bordeaux."
Tsk, tsk, Jean-Michel...
How Aulas thought he was in an appropriate position to taunt us with his team up against the wall facing an away game nightmare and needing to score at Old Trafford is beyond me. Oh hubris, it'll getcha. Funny thing is, a Bordeaux wine doesn't score many goals. Unlike, say, Cristiano Ronaldo who scores a great deal of goals. Take the one he scored yesterday against Aulas' very own Lyon to knock them out of the Champions League, scrappy goal but a goal nonetheless. Keep Benzema, a fine 87' Bordeaux sounds like just the right thing to toast this victory, cheers.
