As things stand now, Manchester City will not play in the Champions League for the next two seasons due to a ban by UEFA.
However, their manager Pep Guardiola believes the evidence that the club has as it prepares for an appeal on the ban is enough and satisfactory and they will be back.
The club has always maintained its innocence over allegations of “overstating its sponsorship revenue” and failing to cooperate with investigations into their case and now Pep says he has been shown the “irrefutable” evidence that will see Man City overturn their Champions League ban.
Speaking to reporters ahead of their match tonight, Guardiola said: “We were under suspicion for a long time. We have the right to appeal. I trust with the people in my club, they explain the reasons, they showed me the arguments and the proof.
“If finally, it doesn’t happen we have to accept and move forward. My trust is with the club. I know them. We have another instance - we are going to see what happens with CAS*.”
The current PL champions play Real Madrid tonight at the Santiago Bernabeu and this could be a chance for Pep and his squad to win a cup that he is yet to lift with the team.
*(CAS) Court of Arbitration for Sport.
