The football world has turned upside down again. UEFA has officially decided to expel Manchester City out of the Champions League. The disqualification of Citizens is to last for the next two seasons. The main reason is a serious breach of financial fair-play regulations.
There were AC Milan and financial problems leading to expulsion from European competition. There was also Chelsea, which was banned from registering players. Now the highest body of European football – UEFA got to Manchester City.
According to official sources – The citizens will not take part in the next two editions of the Champions League. Reason? A serious breach of financial fair-play regulations. There has been talking for a long time about the possible dismissal of the English Champion from European games. Paris Saint Germain also appeared on the same issue, and UEFA finally got their way.
Manchester City have said they are “disappointed but not surprised” after UEFA banned the club from the Champions League for two seasons.

The exclusion of the citizens from the Champions League now means one thing. The future of Pep Guardiola in the British Isles resolves itself. The Spaniard will not reach for the desired Champions League trophy with Manchester City, which in the final analysis may mean leaving after the end of the season.
The more that the fight for the English championship also seems to be lost and the episode in Manchester can not last forever. The citizens of the ongoing European games will end, and we can expect a potential lack from the upcoming season.
Unless Manchester City win their appeal, the fifth-placed Premier League finisher will play in the Champions League

The English champion was disqualified for two years but there is no doubt that the club will appeal against this decision.
