Sports (Talk about balls here.)
UEFA's statement looks to me to have been prepared and finessed since they knew they were bound to lose once someone truly independent examined the case.
Although a fine is still to be paid it is only there because City were found guilty of not providing information in a timely manner. City, of course, will now point out that they were reluctant to assist a kangaroo court when they were aware that they were intent on finding them guilty.
I am not a Manchester City fan but am interested in seeing justice prevail.
It will be interesting to see whether UEFA now give it up as a lost cause or decide to take matters further. Presumably they will want to read the CAS decision carefully before deciding to stick or twist.
