Liverpool legend Carragher tells Man City: You're name hasn't been cleared

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says Manchester City's name has not been cleared despite having their Champions League ban overturned.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld an appeal by City after UEFA found them guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play laws.

"They have still lost nine games this season, which just tells you that money isn't everything, nine teams have beaten them," Carragher told Sky Sports.

"Man City, with the money that they have, haven't won the Champions League, so they're not actually completely dominating really.

"Will it have an effect on the pitch? Will the suspicion that they have done something or have got away with something go away? I don't think so.

"Yes, they have gone to court and won but I don't think that suspicion will ever go away so I don't think they have fully cleared their name in the eyes of people up and down the country.

"Whether that helps the players, they don't have to worry that they might miss out on the Champions League, so they may improve and they certainly need to improve for next season."
