Messi Facing Possible Two Year Ban For CONMEBOL Corruption Comments / Cristiano Ronaldo Receives Two-year Prison Sentence For Tax Evasion / Vote: Who Will Win This Year's Champions League Title (2) (3) (4)
|UEFA Hit Man City With Stunning Two-year Champions League Ban by lifezone247(m): 7:34pm On Feb 14|
Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons and fined €30 million by UEFA.
The reigning Premier League champions have been hit with the remarkable punishment over Financial Fair Play regulations.
The punishment is subject to appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport and it is expected that Manchester City will take the case forward in a bid to have the drastic punishment reduced.
An independent Adjudicatory Chamber of the Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) took the decision today, explaining that City had been found guilty of "serious breaches" of FFP, as well as failing to cooperate in the investigation:
“Following a hearing held on 22 January 2020 the Adjudicatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB), chaired by José da Cunha Rodrigues, has today notified Manchester City Football Club of the final decision on the case which was referred by the CFCB Chief Investigator.
"The Adjudicatory Chamber, having considered all the evidence, has found that Manchester City Football Club committed serious breaches of the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations by overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts and in the break-even information submitted to UEFA between 2012 and 2016.
"The Adjudicatory Chamber has also found that in breach of the regulations the Club failed to cooperate in the investigation of this case by the CFCB.
The Adjudicatory Chamber has imposed disciplinary measures on Manchester City Football Club directing that it shall be excluded from participation in UEFA club competitions in the next two seasons (ie. the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons) and pay a fine of € 30 million."
'Disappointed but not surprised' - Manchester City's response
"Manchester City is disappointed but not surprised by today’s announcement by the UEFA Adjudicatory Chamber. The Club has always anticipated the ultimate need to seek out an independent body and process to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence in support of its position.
"In December 2018, the UEFA Chief Investigator publicly previewed the outcome and sanction he intended to be delivered to Manchester City, before any investigation had even begun. The subsequent flawed and consistently leaked UEFA process he oversaw has meant that there was little doubt in the result that he would deliver. The Club has formally complained to the UEFA Disciplinary body, a complaint which was validated by a CAS ruling.
"Simply put, this is a case initiated by UEFA, prosecuted by UEFA and judged by UEFA. With this prejudicial process now over, the Club will pursue an impartial judgment as quickly as possible and will therefore, in the first instance, commence proceedings with the Court of Arbitration for Sport at the earliest opportunity."
