Manchester City banned and fine 30 million euros

Former Manchester City star Rodney Marsh fears the Premier League champions will be thrown into disarray by their shock two-year ban from UEFA competitions.

City have been barred from the Champions League and Europa League from the start of next season and fined 30 million euros (24.9 million) after being found to have committed “serious breaches” of financial regulations.

The heavy sanctions relate to an alleged overstatement of sponsorship revenue in the club’s efforts to get around Financial Fair Play rules. City, currently second behind runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool, have said they will appeal against the punishment through the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
