Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker has reacted to the news of Man City's overturned ban by asking two important questions.
Uefa had banned City from the next two seasons in the Champions League and Europa League but that was cleared thanks to a Court of Arbitration for Sport decision which was announced this morning.
The suspension was originally handed down in February for what Uefa perceived to be a 'disguising equity funds as sponsorship contributions' which they said amounted to Financial Fair Play breaches.
City have still been fined but that has been cut from £26.9 million to £8.9m, though the club have said the result is a 'validation of the club's position and the body of evidence that it was able to present'.
However, Lineker has reacted to the result and questioned whether Financial Fair Play is over, while he also provided a damning verdict on Uefa.
"Manchester City’s ban has been lifted on appeal. Still a fine to be paid, but a huge win for the club," Lineker said on Twitter.
"Hard to see how UEFA’s FFP rules can survive this. In fact, can UEFA survive the ramifications?"
The CAS statement explained: "The award emphasised that most of the alleged breaches reported by the adjudicatory chamber of the CFCB were either not established or time-barred.
"As the charges with respect to any dishonest concealment of equity funding were clearly more significant violations than obstructing the CFCB's investigations, it was not appropriate to impose a ban on participating in Uefa's club competitions for Manchester City's failure to cooperate with the CFCB's investigations alone."
UEFA responded to the verdict by stating: "Over the last few years, Financial Fair Play has played a significant role in protecting clubs and helping them become financially sustainable and Uefa and the European Club Association remain committed to its principles."
