Champions League ban: CAS confirms Manchester City’s appeal

first_imgThe Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has confirmed that they have registered an appeal from Manchester City as the reigning Premier League champions fight to overturn a two-season Champions League ban. UEFA found the club guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play rules and failing to cooperate with its investigation, handing City a €30m (£25m/$33m) fine on top of their two-year European suspension. City moved quickly to profess their innocence and vowed to prove UEFA wrong, with a CAS appeal the first order of business. CAS has now confirmed the appeal has been lodged, releasing an official statement on Wednesday, which reads: “The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered an appeal filed by Manchester City football club against the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). Man city coach Pep Guardiola ready to stay hammer or no hammerAdvertisement FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… “The appeal is directed against the decision of the Adjudicatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) dated 14 February 2020 in which Manchester City was deemed to have contravened UEFA’s Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations and sanctioned with exclusion from the next two seasons of UEFA club competitions for which the club would qualify and ordered to pay a fine of EUR 30 million. “Generally speaking, CAS appeal arbitration procedures involve an exchange of written submissions between the parties while a Panel of CAS arbitrators is being convened. Once the Panel has been formally constituted it issues procedural directions, including, inter alia, with respect to the holding of a hearing. Following the hearing, the Panel deliberates and then issues its decision in the form of an Arbitral Award. “It is not possible to indicate at this time when a final award in this matter will be issued.” City will hope that a verdict will be reached sooner rather than later as the ban poses a number of questions regarding the club’s future.

Wilson on song in Bournemouth win

first_img Wilson scored Bournemouth’s opener with an 11th-minute volley as the Cherries became the 65th team to score in the top flight. The former Coventry striker then pounced on Aaron Cresswell’s awful back pass for a 2-0 interval lead, but a Mark Noble penalty and Cheikhou Kouyate’s powerful shot levelled it up within eight minutes of the restart. Callum Wilson grabbed a hat-trick as Bournemouth bagged their first Barclays Premier League points with a thrilling 4-3 victory at West Ham. Marc Pugh restored Bournemouth’s lead after 66 minutes and Wilson completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot 13 minutes later after Hammers defender Carl Jenkinson had been sent off. Modibo Maiga gave the Hammers hope nine minutes from time but Bournemouth held on for a famous victory. Leicester lost their 100 per cent record but reclaimed top spot in a 1-1 home draw with Tottenham. Dele Alli’s first Spurs goal gave Tottenham an 81st-minute lead but Riyad Mahrez, who had strong claims for a first-half penalty waved away after being fouled by Jan Vertonghen and hit the post after the break, equalised within 60 seconds. Manchester United, like Leicester, are also on seven points from three games after limping to a goalless home draw with Newcastle. After a week in which they failed to land Barcelona target Pedro, who instead headed for Chelsea, Louis van Gaal’s side drew a blank and have now scored only twice in their opening three league matches. Wayne Rooney thought he had ended his goal drought early on but his effort was ruled out for a marginal offside call and Chris Smalling came the closest to breaking the deadlock for United when he headed against the post in the final minutes. Newcastle defended for their lives but they might have pinched all three points when Aleksandar Mitrovic headed against the crossbar. Sunderland lifted some of the gloom surrounding them after opening defeats to Leicester and Norwich by drawing 1-1 at home to Swansea. Bafetimbi Gomis’ third goal of the season – and his eighth in nine games – gave Swansea the lead on the stroke of half-time but veteran striker Jermain Defoe took some of the pressure off Dick Advocaat’s Black Cats with a 62nd-minute equaliser after Andre Ayew had hit the post for the visitors. Bakary Sako marked his Crystal Palace debut with an 87th-minute winner as the Eagles beat Aston Villa 2-1 at Selhurst Park to move into the top four. Palace thought they had taken the lead just after the hour-mark when substitute Dwight Gayle’s shot struck James McArthur in the stomach and flew into the net. The goal was initially awarded before referee Keith Stroud disallowed it after consulting his assistant, but Scott Dann did give Palace the lead 10 minutes later. Villa levelled when Palace full-back Pape Souare put through his own net after 77 minutes but Sako came up with the decider with a left-footed drive into the bottom corner. Xherdan Shaqiri marked his Stoke debut with an 11th-minute assist in a 1-1 draw at Norwich, the former Bayern Munich winger’s free-kick touched home by Mame Biram Diouf. Canaries captain Russell Martin scored for the second successive game after 28 minutes when he fired past Jack Butland in the Stoke goal. Press Associationlast_img read more

Victor Wanyama: Southampton need more time to gel

first_img Press Association Southampton need more time to adjust to another summer of change to match last season’s Barclays Premier League exploits, according to Victor Wanyama. The Saints slipped to a sixth match without a win in Saturday’s 2-0 home loss to Tottenham, a painful blow exacerbated when delivered by former boss Mauricio Pochettino. Ronald Koeman’s men claimed a record seventh-place Premier League finish last term, before losing stars like Morgan Schneiderlin to Manchester United. center_img Wanyama is once again the subject of speculation around a potential switch to Arsenal, but the 24-year-old Kenya midfielder continues to focus on arresting Southampton’s recent slump. “We still need to work together and to know each other more because we had a lot of changes in the team and we still need a bit of time to gel together,” Wanyama told Southampton’s official club website. “It’s about being together. We just need to fight more and sharpen ourselves up because we have some tough games ahead. “I think it’s not going to go your way all the time, but we believe in ourselves and we believe we can still get there. “We still have a chance and if we work hard then we can still get up there.” Harry Kane and Dele Alli struck Spur’s goals in Saturday’s victory at St Mary’s, leaving Southampton 12th in the table ahead of hosting Arsenal on Boxing Day. “It was difficult because we didn’t have many chances,” said Wanyama. “At the beginning of the game we had more chances, good chances and we just let them score from nothing. “If a team scores from nothing then it’s always going to be difficult. “We did well in the first 30 minutes then I don’t know what happened.” last_img read more
