Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons by Uefa and fined €30m (£25m) after they were found to have seriously misled European football’s governing body and broken financial fair play rules.

Hugely damaging for them! That mean 5th spot in the EPL gets CL or does it go elsewhere in Europe based on merit etc?

Their crowds will dwindle even more now. Can't see Pep sticking around either! :lol:

Also it's a shame UEFA care more about money than racism. Their fines for racism have been embarrassing.

Breaches of money rules do matter, but you make a fair point.  
 

Teams and players have been fined more for wearing and displaying t-shirts, UEFA don’t approve of.

Agree Andy, they should ban clubs that have a known history of racism & sectarianism.

Not convinced. None of the transfer bans handed out were lifted.

CAS will probably do it as the main investigator before any investigations effectively said what the punishment was going to be suggesting he had already found them guilty

Not sure how I feel about this one tbh. They were always gonna run in to some trouble somewhere along the line and it’s a good thing that uefa have shown they’ll punish teams no matter how big. Are Man City really that bad when it comes to this? Look at the wages United will spend, or PSG for example, they can’t be fully compliant surely?

 

In any case, reckon there will be a mass exodus at the end of the season and it’ll be so much harder to get players in. Does this mean 5th place in England will get CL football then?

Will be thrown out at the Court of Arbitration in Sport. 

 

Will end up with a fine. 

 

English sport in the spotlight for cheating though. With Saracens and now this. Giving Russia a good go for world cheats.

They’ve allowed the Spanish clubs, in particular, to do what they like with finances over many years. There was a time that the EU were said to have used the Spanish banks favourable treatment to Real Madrid as an example of how they were reckless with the borrowing they allowed.

It was certain that after 4 English clubs were in the European finals last season, that UEFA would look to satisfy displeasure from some of the previously dominant associations.

We are in a situation where countries own English teams now. The SKY cash has blown all reason away. Having said that, UEFA started all this by loading the Champions League in favour of the bigger clubs in Europe. No chance of a team like Malmo or even Celtic getting near a final now.

No danger that will happen.

 

They will just be given a larger fine to pay.  i.e .  A bribe.

'Uefa launched an investigation after German newspaper Der Spiegel published leaked documents in November 2018 alleging City had inflated the value of a sponsorship deal, misleading European football's governing body.

Reports alleged City - who have always denied wrongdoing - deliberately misled Uefa so they could meet FFP rules requiring clubs to break even.

City were fined £49m in 2014 for a previous breach of regulations.'

Don’t see it like that at all. Man City are about as establishment as you can get now. Plenty former great European clubs don’t get a sniff nowadays, and that is down to UEFA and their insistence on seeding and putting fourth places teams from cash rich clubs ahead of the champions of smaller leagues.

That is fantastic news. Just a shame that the cowards that run Scottish football didn't sign up to the FFP rules.

Of course there will be an appeal but there will be at least a one season ban

 

That does give him and the board something to think about

 

Oh and never mind the players that may  have arrived in the summer doing a 180 and looking elsewhere

 

The Liverpool era is truly about to take off

I'd like to see the winners of the FA Cup get the 4th spot. 5th place in the EPL is hardly an achievement. Might help the FA Cup regain some it's value, albeit temporarily.
