UEFA on its official website stated the decision of the sports arbitration court to cancel the disqualification of Manchester City in European competition for two seasons.
“UEFA takes note of the court decision to ease the sanctions imposed on Manchester City by an independent financial control body for alleged violations of licensing rules and financial fair play. We note that the commission did not consider the evidence supporting the conclusions of the authority to be sufficiently convincing, and also that many of the alleged violations were time-limited and fall beyond the five-year statute of limitations provided for by the rules.
Over the past few years, the financial fair play has played an important role in protecting clubs and helping them achieve financial sustainability, and UEFA remains committed to its principles. In the future, we will not comment on this issue, ” the statement said.
