The International Sports Arbitral Tribunal of Lausanne has decided to accept Manchester City’s appeal and therefore to cancel the exclusion for two years from the European competitions of the team coached by Guardiola, decided by the judicial chamber of the Club Financial Control Body last February 14 after the violation of some rules of financial fair play. In addition, the initial 30 million euro fine was reduced to 10 million
Manchester City can smile, and with him Guardiola and all his fans: the Champions League is safe. The specter of the exclusion for two seasons from European events proposed by the decision of the Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) of 14 February due to the failure to comply with the financial fair play stakes has been dissolved by the decision of the International Sports Arbitral Tribunal (TAS) of Lausanne, which after having examined the appeal of the Khaldun al-Mubarak company decided to cancel the disqualification for two seasons and to reduce the more, which from the initial 30 million euros fell to 10 million. Save the Champions League then. But also and above all the market of Guardiola’s team, which would certainly have been affected by the failure to participate in the European cups (for example the stay of De Bruyne would have been at great risk with the confirmation of the disqualification).
