Man city's european cup ban and the consequences: klopp has sympathy

Jurgen klopp was also "shocked". When the liverpool FC coach heard about the drastic penalty against his rivals, he felt for pep guardiola and his players.

"They certainly didn’t do anything wrong," said klopp. This does not apply to the management of manchester city – because of years of financial fraud, the english champions will not be allowed to compete in the european cup for two seasons. Now several court cases loom, the star players of the citizens will look around. Among them also ilkay gundogan and leroy sane.

The two german national players must have little desire for two seasons without the champions league, sane has been linked to FC bayern for months anyway. If the UEFA ruling published on friday also stood before the international sports court cas, nothing could stand in the way of the transfer of the 24-year-old, who is contractually bound to manchester until 2021, in the summer. It is expected that the citizens will also officially call the cas soon. According to the english media, the deadline is ten days.

Fourth-quarter operating income was a loss of 1.7 billion dollars (1.6 billion euros), the company announced in montreal on thursday. In the corresponding period of the previous year, there had been a profit of 342 million dollars.

One of the reasons for the sharp decline is the high cost of the european railroad business. Bombardier initially did not respond to media reports that the division is to be sold off.
