At 10:30 am on Monday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport made official the ruling in favor of Manchester City in the appeal that this club brought before this court to UEFA for the sanction imposed for skipping the Fair Play Financial and that left him out of the next two editions of any European competition.
The TAS agreed with the City although it imposed a 10 million euros fine for not collaborating with the investigation, assumable losses compared to those that would lead to the exit of official competitions.
To celebrate it, Manel Estiarte, Olympic gold water polo player in '96 with Spain and now part of Pep Guardiola's technical staff, uploaded a photo to his Instagram in which, among others, Estiarte himself, Pep Guardiola and Txiki Begiristain, director of City football, in front of a television on which a Sky Sports program was broadcast announcing the lifting of the UEFA sanction.
Accompanied by a brief 'Yes!', Estiarte celebrated for a few minutes in networks the lifting of this sanction since she finally ended up removing the photograph from her profile.
