if the team of Pep Guardiola fails to take part in the Champions League next two seasons for the banishment, the Belgium midfielder Kevin de Bruyne might leave the Etihad Stadium. In European competitions, Manchester City has been banned for two years. Now, the Premier League champion has made the appeal against the verdict.
The champion of the Premier League Manchester City broke the rules of the financial fair play and the UEFA club license. So, in the last 15th February, the UEFA has banned Manchester City for the next two seasons from the competitions of UEFA. At the same time, they were fined around three crores of Euro. But the Premier League champion Man City has simply denied the allegations.
And also made the appeal to the International Sports Courts against the verdict. But if the banishment continues, it will be very difficult to accept that, the Belgium playmaker stated that. Not to take part in the European competitions for that long is not acceptable, to a Belgium news portal, Kevin de Bruyne stated that.
