Manchester City has come out quickly in response to the tough penalty imposed by UEFA, which condemns two seasons without contesting European competitions and a fine of 30 million euros. The club, “disappointed”, confirms that it will resort to the Court of Sports Arbitration to try to reduce the punishment and, in addition, charges heavily against the body, which it accuses of not acting impartially and of issuing a verdict when it had not even been Started the investigation. This is the full statement:

Manchester City is disappointed, but not surprised by today's UEFA Chamber announcement. The club has always requested the need to seek an independent body and an impartial procedure. In December 2018, UEFA's head of investigation publicly anticipated the result and the penalty he intended to send to Manchester City, even before any investigation began. The subsequent UEFA process was defective and constantly leaked left little doubt of its outcome. The club has formally complained to the UEFA disciplinary body, a claim validated by the Sports Arbitration Court.

Simply put, this is a case initiated by UEFA, processed by UEFA and judged by UEFA. With this harmful process now over, the club will seek an impartial trial as quickly as possible and, therefore, in the first instance, will begin the necessary proceedings before the Court of Sports Arbitration as soon as possible.“.
