Man City facing Champions League ban 'within weeks'

Manchester City are facing a Champions League ban being handed down in the coming weeks.

The Sun says City could still face a Champions League ban 'within weeks' - despite asking the Court of Arbitration for Sport to throw out UEFA's case against them.

UEFA's investigators want City to be banned from Europe's premier competition for a year for allegedly breaking financial rules, first revealed by Der Spiegel last year.

City argue that a biased process has not been conducted properly by the ruling body, but it has been reported that their appeals may not stop a ban.

City's claims have no effect in terms of stopping UEFA's decision, and a sanction could be imposed in the coming weeks.
