Manchester City’s 2-year ban from European football being overturned is great because it means their amazing team will not be broken up, Micah Richards has said.
Micah is happy with the verdict because the players and Pep Guardiola needed that clarity about the club’s future.
According to him, City always pleaded their innocence from day one so it is good to see that they ban was canceled as soon as thery appealed the judgement.
He added that missing out on UCL for 2 years would’ve damaged the club since Pep Guardiola’s contract is up at the end of next season and KDB is in the form of his life.
His words, “It’s good news. I don’t want to be biased but with Man City they always pleaded their innocence from day one and it’s good to see it come to a conclusion after it hanging over them for so long,”
“It has made it difficult to plan for the future but, finally, it has come to a conclusion which is good for everyone.
“Two years would have been so damaging. Pep Guardiola’s contract is up at the end of next season, Kevin De Bruyne is in the form of his life – the players in that side want to play Champions League football.
“It’s good it’s over with. From a players’ point of view, it’s difficult not knowing if you would be in it so to put it to bed is brilliant.”
“When you look at Liverpool this season, they’ve been brilliant. The gap [in the table] this season is astonishing but before that City have been the go-to team.
“We should enjoy this manager and this team because they are record holders and record breakers and no one wants to see this team broken up.
“For Liverpool, their victory this season must be sweeter knowing the team they have beaten. To see this City team stay together is great for Man City and the Premier League in general.”
