The Manchester City has been sanctioned by UEFA as a result of his behavior in the second leg of the quarterfinal against Atlético de Madrid at the Metropolitan Stadium. As you have been able to find out Sports world, the highest body in European football has fined the English team fourteen thousand euros
Sanction as a result of the unsportsmanlike behavior that UEFA considers the English team had that day when five of the players who participated in the Metropolitan were reprimanded that day. And the UEFA Disciplinary Code makes it clear in its article 15 of its Disciplinary Code that it is grounds for punishment «if a club has inappropriate conduct» and among them «if five or more players of a team are disciplinary sanctioned by the referee» .
Specifically, five were the players who received the yellow card on April 13 at the Atletico stadium. Specifically, it was about Fohden, Marez, Rodrigo, Nathan Aké and Cancelo. In addition, the latter meant reaching the card cycle and missing the first leg of the Champions League semifinals in Manchester against Real Madrid.
In fact, precisely this behavior of Guardiola’s team, especially in the last minutes, was something that drew special attention due to the way the «citizens» wasted time and their constant interruptions of the match.
