Manchester City have been banned from UEFA club competitions for the next two seasons and fined €30m after being found to have "committed serious breaches of the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations", European football's governing body has announced. Sponsorships boost revenues and therefore the amount that clubs have to spend under FFP, so the perception that Mansour himself was in fact funding the Etihad deal led to the serious allegation that City had deceived Uefa's CFCB, which is responsible for ensuring compliance with FFP.

Manchester City have appealed the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The club appointed decorated Spaniard manager Pep Guardiola in 2016 and while he has delivered Premier League titles, he has yet to add the sought-after Champions League title to the Manchester team's trophy cabinet.

The club, while admitting they were not surprised by the sanction, have revealed their intention to appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

When City were charged last May, the club vehemently denied any wrongdoing, saying that they had been subjected to a "hostile" process which ignored "a comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence".

"The subsequent flawed and consistently leaked UEFA process he oversaw has meant that there was little doubt in the result that he would deliver". They have already formally complained to the Uefa Disciplinary body.

Manchester City goes on to claim that UEFA were biased in their judgment, as the case was "initiated by UEFA, prosecuted by UEFA and judged by UEFA." .
