MANCHESTER CITY have seen their Champions League ban lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport this morning… much to the dread of United and Chelsea fans.
Fans had believed that fifth-place would be enough to qualify for Europe’s premier competition this season, with Pep Guardiola’s side set to miss out.
Manchester City will play Champions League football next season
But after City were found to have not “disguised equity funding as sponsorship”, the race for top-five just became the race for top-four once more.
And United and Chelsea fans are clearly not happy with the news, now being made to sweat on their participation in next season’s competition.
One took to Twitter to write: “WHAT A JOKE. FFP should be scrapped now.”
While another fumed: “FFS MAN WHAT IS THE POINT OF RULES IF U CAN BREAK EM AND GET AWAY WITH IT??”
Another forlornly wrote: “They broke the rules and it got reduced to nothing this is so messed up”.
One added: “Chelsea will go play Europa!!!!!!”
And another angry fan mused: “FOOTBALL IS FINISHED.”
One fan did seem confident about the pair’s prospects, however, writing: “Leicester not getting CL football”.

Manchester United and Chelsea now face a dogfight with Leicester for the final two Champions League places
Manchester City have already sealed second place with three games to go, sitting 12 points above Chelsea.
But then the race gets interesting, with Frank Lampard’s side third on 60 points, one point above Leicester City in fourth, and two above United in fifth.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, however, have a crucial game in hand as they host Southampton this evening.
