cas is not up to standard laliga chief javier tebas takes aim at court of arbitration for sport

LaLiga president Javier Tebas has taken aim at the Court of Arbitration for Sport after they overturned Manchester City‘s two-year Champions League ban on Monday.

UEFA initially handed City a European ban for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations, but City appealed to CAS and subsequently had the ban taken away.

The decision, revealed at 9:30am on Monday morning, leaves FFP rules in tatters and Tebas was quick to insist that changes need to be made at the top.

Speaking shortly after the announcement, he said: ‘We have to reassess whether CAS is the appropriate body to which to appeal institutional decisions in football.

‘Switzerland is a country with a great history of arbitration, CAS is not up to standard.’

In the hours after the decision was made, ‘RIP FFP’ was trending on Twitter as fans suggested UEFA’s spending restrictions are ‘dead’. 

Gary Lineker was also among those giving his thoughts, as he questioned whether UEFA could even continue given the decision made by CAS.

WHO ARE CAS AND WHAT DO THEY DO?

CAS, or The Court of Arbitration for Sport, are an independent body that settles disputes relating to sport through arbitration.

Set up in 1984, they are based in Lausanne, Switzerland, and have dealt with a number of high-profile cases not only in football but across sport.

Recent cases include the £15m transfer row between Nantes and Cardiff over the late Emiliano Sala, and Sir Mo Farah’s former coach Alberto Salazar and his anti-doping violations.

Posting on Twitter, he wrote: ‘Hard to see how UEFA’s FFP rules can survive this. In fact, can UEFA survive the ramifications?’ 

CAS is an international, independent, body set up in 1984 that settles disputes relating to sport through arbitration.

Its headquarters are in Lausanne, in Switzerland, and the body have dealt with a number of high-profile cases in recent years, across not only football but the world of sport as a whole.

Sir Mo Farah’s former coach Alberto Salazar is currently hoping to overturn anti-doping violations at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, while CAS have also recently dealt with Cardiff and Nantes’ row over the £15m transfer of the late Emiliano Sala.

Financial Fair Play rules are a hot topic in football at the moment, not least in Tebas’ Spanish top flight with Barcelona.

The Nou Camp giants sold Arthur Melo to Juventus in a big-money move at the end of June, a deal which kept them within FFP restrictions.

They then bought Miralem Pjanic from Juventus shortly after, effectively making it a swap deal between the two clubs.

EMILIANO MARTINEZ made the perfect start to life at Aston Villa by saving John Lundstram’s penalty on his debut.

With 35 minutes on the clock at Villa Park, Sheffield United were awarded a spot kick when Matt Targett tripped Chris Basham.

But after a needlessly-long VAR check by Mike Dean, Lundstram stepped up and smashed the ball to Martinez’s right.

The Argentine, who signed from Arsenal for £20million this month, flew across to make the save, getting two hands on it and pushing it past the post.

It compounded a nightmare start for the visiting Blades who had skipper John Egan sent off after just 12 minutes for hauling down Ollie Watkins.

micah richards claims pep guardiola is not trusting his team and their defence must be sorted

Micah Richards believes Manchester City have some serious defensive issues to sort out if they are to reclaim their place as champions of England.

Pep Guardiola‘s side face Wolves in their first game of the new campaign on Monday night and Richards is doubtful that they will be fully prepared.

‘City’s problems are defensive,’ Sportsmail’s columnist said during his role as a pundit on Sky Sports.

‘Losing Vincent Kompany was a massive risk. Losing Laporte for a lot of last season was a massive miss. Problem lies with Fernandinho dropping back and Rodri trying to fill in the gaps. The defence is then left too exposed. 

There’s no real consistency. I don’t even think Pep knows his best back four. Kyle Walker is probably the only certainty in that side. 

He’s not trusting his team. When I was playing under Mancini we’d always rotate the full-backs, it’s just that centre back pairing. 

‘The manager has lost faith in his centre backs – every window they’re linked with one. They’ve brought in Ake – is he going to be the one to lead that line? I’m not too sure.
