Pep Guardiola so confident Manchester City will be in Champions League. Manchester City will learn their European fate for the next two terms on Monday.
City manager Pep Guardiola is adamant the club will be participating in the Champions League or Europa League next season. That’s despite the prospect of a two-year ban in Europe looming over their head.
The Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) confirmed on Friday evening that City will learn their European fate on Monday after the Premier League club made an appeal over their ban.
In February, Guardiola’s side were banned from European football for two years by UEFA for breaches of the governing body’s Financial Fair Play rules.
They appealed against the punishment – which came with a €30million (£27m) fine – to CAS. And a three-day hearing was heard in Switzerland and over video conference in May.
“I’m so confident. Because I saw the arguments of the club that next season we will be there (in Champions League),” he said ahead of their Premier League match with Brighton on Saturday night.
