Barcelona have retained their status as arguably the most reputable club in Europe in a list published today. Champions League winners Bayern Munich are viewed as many as the club which has taken the biggest step over the last twelve months, and enjoy much greater attention in Europe as a result.
At the other end of the scale, many observers believe that Shaktar Donetsk’s stature within European football has taken a sharp decline over the past year. Borussia Dortmund’s stature in the game has remained largely intact during the last twelve months.
