Manchester City will on Monday have their European fate decided in the Court of Arbitration for Sports after months of hearing by the body’s lawyers.
City were handed a two-year ban by UEFA from European competitions coupled with a €30m (25m) fine for breaking the financial fair play (FFP) regulations between 2012 and 2016.
The Citizens without wasting time opted for appeal with CAS.
City manager Pep Guardiola in a press conference reacted to the appeal ; “We are ready, i have a lot of confidence and trust with the people that we will be allowed to play the Champions League because we want to be on the field during these years”.
Should CAS find them guilty and the ban upheld, City will not be taking part in the Champions league next season and their spot will be allotted to the fifth place team.
