Man City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and UEFA hold peace talks

We want to go on the pitch and compete with them.

City has consistently pleaded its innocence since its ban in February, initially calling the UEFA process "flawed". Their initial fine of 30 million euros was also brought down to 10 million euros. I would like to see these kind of people and say, "Look in our eyes". But, if they want, they know my telephone number, they can call me and I can explain.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager kicked off his meeting with the media by criticizing the Court of Arbitration for Sport's (CAS) decision to overturn Manchester City'stwo-year ban from the Champions League.

As the surprise judgement continues to rumble on, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham's Jose Mourinho both publicly disagreed with verdict, Klopp stating it was "not a good day for football" and that Financial Fair Play was "a good idea and it is there to protect teams and the competition".

UEFA's FFP regulations are created to curb such extravagance, with City previous year found in breach of the rules after being accused of overstating sponsorship revenue in accounts and failing to co-operate with the investigation. "As Klopp said, it was a bad day for football".

Manchester City fans - and indeed his employers at the club - will be delighted with the 25 minutes that were set aside, nominally, to discuss Wednesday's home game against Bournemouth.

Liverpool manager Klopp said he was "happy that City can play in the Champions League" but added: "I don't think it was a good day for football yesterday".

During his first season at Anfield, Klopp lost in the League Cup and Europa League finals before losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in 2018.

"City, in the last five years, along with PSG, are the club that have spent the most".

"Now it seems that Manchester City are charity's little sister and that they haven't signed players - they are the club, alongside PSG, who have signed the most", Tebas continued. I come from Germany, where it's a different club-based system and it's not an owner system, so as long as they stick to that system, you will never have those problems.

What now for Man City, PL? "The Etihad Stadium is not worth (what is paid for it) and that creates a very risky economic situation for us", he added.

Earlier, had reported how Manchester City are reportedly preparing to lavish £150 million after their Champions League ban was overturned, including tying Pep Guardiola down to a new contract. "The Club wishes to thank the panel members for their diligence and the due process that they administered". "It's the opposite of what it should be; there's no transparency".

UEFA's FFP policy is facing fresh scrutiny after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), in assessing City's challenge to their punishment, determined that "most of the alleged breaches. were either not established or time-barred".
