Nine PL clubs wrote to CAS requesting Man City’s Champions League ban be upheld

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has revealed that nine Premier League clubs wrote to them asking for Manchester City’s ban from the two-year European competitions be upheld.

According to Sky Sports reporter, Sky Kaveh, the nine are Arsenal, Burnley, Chelsea, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle, Tottenham Hotspur, and Wolves.

“CAS confirm nine clubs wrote to them in March asking them not to lift Man City’s European ban while City appealed. City never applied for the ban to be lifted,” said Kaveh in a tweet.

A fortnight ago, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho and his Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp criticized the decision by CAS to lift City’s ban, which saw the 2019 PL champions part with EUR 10m.

Mourinho specifically termed the call “a disgrace” and “a bad day for football”.

UEFA initially slapped City with the ban for serious breaches to the Financial Fair Play regulations between 2012 and 2016.
