The two season ban which the football governing body in Europe (UEFA) imposed on Manchester City could trigger exodus of players from the club.
UEFA last week imposed a ban on Manchester City from participating in UEFA Champions league for two seasons after finding the club management guilty of violating it’s financial fair play rules.
This view was expressed by a soccer pundit, Kolawole Babatunde on Oluyole FM discussion programme, Breakfast Fiesta on Friday morning, February 21, 2020.
Babatunde stated that many star players of Man City could leave the club for others featuring in Europe’s elite club competition, as they could not afford to be left out of UCL and the lucrative opportunities accompanying the money spinning competition.
He further said the sanction against Manchester City would not affect the quality of play in the UEFA Champions League, as there are other big clubs with free flowing football that would fill the vacuum created by Man City’s absence.
Babatunde voiced his support for the UEFA sanction against the Manchester team in sky blue saying the action could sanitise the way rich clubs lavished money on players.
However, the management of Manchester City have denied any wrong doing and had vowed to appeal against the UEFA ban at the court of Arbitration for sports.
