Anti-tax Europe

Wembley Stadium has lost out to Real Madrid's Bernabeu Stadium in its bid to host the 2010 Champions League final because of tax reasons, says Uefa.

Wembley was discounted after failing to provide assurances that players competing in the final would not be taxed by the British government.

"Yes, the reason was the taxes," said Uefa president Michel Platini.

Priceless.
