As you know, Manchester City is awaiting the decision of the Arbitration Court. Pep is optimistic. Guardiola believes that City will be allowed in the Champions League.
Josep Guardiola not only does not lose hope but also believes that Manchester City will get the permission to play in the Champions League next season. The verdict should be announced in the week starting July 13.
“I will not lose confidence in people. I think we will play in the Champions League,” said the Spaniard.
Recall that in February, UEFA decided to disqualify the English club from the Euro Cup for two years and fined them with 30 million euros. This was due to the violation of the rules of financial fair play. Manchester City have filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The case was still under discussion for three days in June.
The verdict was initially expected to be made public on July 10. But UEFA requested a postponement for a while in order not to interfere with the draw of the playoffs of the Champions League.
So, if the disqualification of Manchester City remains in force, according to the results of the English Premier League season 2019/20, the team that will take the 5th place in the tournament table will receive the trip to the Champions League. Currently, Manchester United is in this position with 55 points in 33 matches.
