The Manchester City football Club of England has been banned from the competitions of the European Union Football Association (EUFA) for two seasons.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reports that the ban was as a result of “serious breaches” of UEFA’s club licensing and financial fair play regulations.
The reigning Premier League champions have also been fined 30m Euros (25m Pounds).
The action of EUFA is however subject to appeal to the court of Arbitration for Sports by Man City.
Reacting, Manchester City said they were ‘disappointed but not surprised’ by the announcement and will definitely appeal.
Some of the fans said there will be more legal action on this case stating that the process that led to the judgment is flawed.
The anonymous source said, “the club do not intend to brief or leak information as they accuse UEFA of doing as per CAS documentation reported” expressing confidence of a successful outcome once the matter is dealt with by an independent body.
Coach Pep Gourdelia has been on the edge over his continued stay in the club saying that he suspects he will be removed if he does not win a trophy.
Man City is trailing Liverpool in the Premiere league and Football fans are already referring to Liverpool F. C. as ‘Champions elect’.
