Champions League: Manchester City suspended on historic decision

The Sports Arbitral Tribunal (CAS) has announced that it will issue its verdict this morning on the Citizens’ appeal. A verdict that will make a big splash.

The wait is soon over and the verdict eagerly awaited. Liverpool Dolphin in the Premier League and still qualified in the Champions League (2-1 winner of the 1/8 final to go against Real Madrid), Manchester City crosses his fingers. Because it may well be that the training led by Pep Guardiola is deprived of dessert for a little while. Last Friday, the Arbitral Tribunal for Sport (CAS) has indeed indicated that it would announce this Monday, July 13 (around 10:30 am) its decision on the arbitration procedure between Manchester City and UEFA. An extremely important meeting.

As a reminder, the governing body of European football had struck hard against the Citizens by announcing on February 14 that the English club was suspended from any European cup for the next two seasons. “The referee board imposed disciplinary measures on Manchester City FC, ordering it to cease participating in UEFA club competitions for the next two seasons (ie the 2020/21 and 2021 seasons / 22) and to pay a fine of 30 million euros. “ A stab in the heart for the Citizens, on Valentine’s Day.

A landmark decision

Accused of having broken the rules of financial fair play, City had, not surprisingly, appealed and seized the CAS. The Mancunians’ goal was very clear: to hope to succeed as what had happened at Paris Saint-Germain, even if the Rouge-et-Bleu were not exposed to the same sanction. Anyway, the CAS decision will make a big splash. If UEFA is disowned, the entire FPF system is at risk. But if the sanction pronounced on February 14 is confirmed, or even reduced to one year, it would be a huge signal sent to the behemoths of the football world vis-à-vis compliance with the rules of the FPF.

A judgment that would establish the authority of UEFA, but with terrible consequences for City. In addition to the loss of the juicy income from cutting with big ears, the Times announces that the club could be subject to a withdrawal of points by the Premier League (and the 5th in the ranking would be qualified in its place). But that’s not all. The absence of the European Cup would risk pushing several stars from the Pep Guardiola team to demand a start. What a player like Kevin De Bruyne had already suggested. See you in just under three hours.
