Manchester City, Tottenham, Aston Villa & Portsmouth all have intriguing UEFA Cup opposition – see all the best group prices and previews here.

Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu says he has no intention of paying the fine handed down to him by Fifa.

The Romania international has been ordered to pay €17million to former employers Chelsea as a result of a cancelled contract at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues terminated Mutu’s deal in October 2004 after the player tested positive for cocaine.

He was subsequently banned for seven months, but immediately signed for Juventus when free to play again. A subsequent move to Fiorentina in 2006 coincided with him rediscovering his best form.

“What has happened to me is not right and I will fight for my rights,” he said.

“It is pleasing to have the support of the Association of Romanian Players and the intentional syndicate for professional players (FIFPro).

“I’m proud to see that we are all thinking the same thing.”
