Football might be out for a while and that is consistent across all major European leagues, but another thing Liverpool is looking to keep consistent is the omission of Man City from the Champions League next season.
Manchester City was handed a two-year European ban by FIFA after being found guilty of breaking FFP rules and even though they have lodged an appeal to the Court of Arbitration, Liverpool and every other team currently in the top ten besides Man City and Sheffield United, have written to the same court to prevent the Cityzens from playing even while the appeal is ongoing.
This is according to The Daily Mail, via an unnamed “source close to the situation.”
“The feeling is that enough is enough,” the unnamed source reportedly said. “For too long, City have been able to get away with breaching the rules at the expense of at least one other club that has been unable to get into the Champions League.
“The fear is that they will be able to delay any punishment.”
At this rate actually, it might be a moot point.
With international and domestic sporting events canceled left and right (for good reason), there’s a real possibility that there might not be a 2020/21 Champions League campaign.
