During game against Manchester City

icon sadfan18 January ~ Ajax have been fined €10,000 (£8,300) by UEFA after their fans displayed a "provocative" banner that "created unrest" during their Champions League game against Manchester City. The display showed a sheikh holding a bag of money with a red line through it alongside a message reading "Against Modern Football!". However, in the same game the Ajax fans also showed a banner that read "€80 for the away section is ridiculous!", showing solidarity with the City fans who had paid that price to watch their team in Amsterdam.
