Manchester City to play in Champions League next season

Manchester City will play in the Champions League next season after the Sports Arbitral Tribunal (TAS) overturned the two-year ban on the European football club.

City was suspended by the UEFA club financial supervisory body in February for “serious breaches” of club licensing and financial fair play rules.

The Premier League club vehemently denied any wrongdoing and appealed the CAS decision last month, after previously describing the UEFA disciplinary process as “prejudicial”.

After hearing testimony over the course of three days in June, the CAS has now canceled the suspension – which means City is free to participate in the Champions League next season, having secured second place in the Premier League with a 5-0 victory over Brighton on Saturday.

Speaking after the match, city manager Pep Guardiola said he was confident the ban would be lifted and insisted that his team deserved to play in the elite European football competition .

“Today we have had an incredible challenge, that of mathematical qualification for the Champions League,” said Guardiola. Sky Sports.

“It’s the challenge that is the minimum requirement for this club. And these players have done it for the last six or seven years.

“We deserve to be there because we won it on the field. Hopefully, UEFA will be able to allow us to play like this team on Monday and these players deserve it. ”
