LaLiga president hits out at CAS after overturning Man City's UEFA ban

LaLiga president Javier Tebas has questioned the suitability of the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) after they overturned a decision to ban Man City from the Champions League. 

The court made the eagerly anticipated decision on Monday morning, allowing the English side to participate in next season's competition, which they have already qualified for. 

City had been handed a two-year ban for alleged breach of the Financial Fair Play rules, which could have seen them miss the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons.

Tebas, who is vocal in matters touching on breaches of FFP rules was critical of the decision, saying the body was not up to standard. 

“We have to reassess whether the CAS is the appropriate body to which to appeal institutional decisions in football,” Tebas said on Monday.

“Switzerland is a country with a great history of arbitration, the Cas is not up to standard.”

City though were still fined €10m (£8.9m) for failing to cooperate with Uefa as part of the routine investigations. 

The full reasons for the decision to be published later this week.
