Tottenham one of eight PL clubs trying to stop Man City from Champions League participation
Tottenham are one of the eight Premier League clubs not keen on Manchester City playing in the Champions League next season.
The Daily Mail reports that the entire top 10, apart from City and Sheffield United, have submitted an application to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
CAS will hear City’s plea against the Champions League ban handed to them by UEFA. The Premier League champions breached Financial Fair Play rules (FFP) and were handed a two-year ban.
City want the punishment to be withheld when their appeal at CAS continues. However, eight of the top 10 Premier League sides object such a move. This includes the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, and is an indication of how the other clubs feel regarding the situation.
City were also fined £25million by UEFA for their FFP shenanigans, although CAS have said that the Premier League champions haven’t lodged an application regarding the punishment.
Spurs and City played out a couple of incredible Champions League games last season, and it will be interesting to see what happens with City next.
Although we are out of the Champions League after losing to RB Leipzig, City could make things tough for UEFA. They could win the title and put UEFA in a big problem next season.
The coronavirus pandemic has played havoc across the world. The Champions League and Premier League have been suspended and hopefully, things improve soon for football to resume.
Spurs lie eighth in the Premier League standings and are in danger of missing the Champions League spots.
