Manchester City Banned From UEFA Club Competitions For 2 Seasons & Fined €30m

Man City

Manchester City have been banned from the UEFA club competitions for the next two seasons by Uefa and fined €30m (£25m) after they were found to have seriously misled European football’s governing body and broken financial fair play rules.

UEFA handed down the punishment to the Premier League giants for breaching Financial Fair Play rules.

A statement read: “The Adjudicatory Chamber, having considered all the evidence, has found that Manchester City Football Club committed serious breaches of the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations by overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts and in the break-even information submitted to UEFA between 2012 and 2016.

“The Adjudicatory Chamber has also found that in breach of the regulations the Club failed to cooperate in the investigation of this case by the CFCB.

“The Adjudicatory Chamber has imposed disciplinary measures on Manchester City Football Club directing that it shall be excluded from participation in UEFA club competitions in the next two seasons (ie. the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons) and pay a fine of € 30 million.

“The decision of the Adjudicatory Chamber is subject to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). If Manchester City Football Club exercises that right the full reasoned decision of the Adjudicatory Chamber will not be published prior to publication of the final award by the CAS.”

“As noted by the Adjudicatory Chamber, the club has the right to appeal this decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Therefore, UEFA will not be commenting further on this decision at this stage.”

Manchester City responded with a statement on their official website, expressing their disappointment with the decision.

But the English side are not surprised by the suspension and says UEFA had made the decision even before the investigation had started.

“Manchester City is disappointed but not surprised by today’s announcement by the UEFA Adjudicatory Chamber,” the statement said. “The Club has always anticipated the ultimate need to seek out an independent body and process to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence in support of its position.

“In December 2018, the UEFA Chief Investigator publicly previewed the outcome and sanction he intended to be delivered to Manchester City, before any investigation had even begun. The subsequent flawed and consistently leaked UEFA process he oversaw has meant that there was little doubt in the result that he would deliver. The Club has formally complained to the UEFA Disciplinary body, a complaint which was validated by a CAS ruling.

“Simply put, this is a case initiated by UEFA, prosecuted by UEFA and judged by UEFA. With this prejudicial process now over, the Club will pursue an impartial judgment as quickly as possible and will therefore, in the first instance, commence proceedings with the Court of Arbitration for Sport at the earliest opportunity.”

Coronavirus Can Spread Through Surfaces And Objects Such As Desks And Telephones : WHO

Published

on

The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for the promotion of regular and thorough hand-washing hygiene, adding that the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) can be contracted when someone infected coughs or exhales.

The global health body released a statement on February 27 titled ” Getting your workplace ready for COVID-19″. In the document, WHO warned that people can contract the virus if droplets of infected fluid falls on nearby surfaces and objects such as desks, tables or telephones.

The statement reads in part: “People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth – and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.

“If they are standing within one meter of a person with COVID-19 they can catch it by breathing in droplets coughed out or exhaled by them.

“In other words, COVID-19 spreads in a similar way to flu. Most persons infected with COVID-19 experience mild symptoms and recover. However, some go on to experience more serious illness and may require hospital care.

“Risk of serious illness rises with age: people over 40 seem to be more vulnerable than those under 40. People with weakened immune systems and people with conditions such as diabetes, heart and lung disease are also more vulnerable to serious illness.”

The document went on to list ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the workplace.

The document states: “Make sure your workplaces are clean and hygienic, surfaces (e.g. desks and tables) and objects (e.g. telephones, keyboards) need to be wiped with disinfectant regularly.

“Why? Because contamination on surfaces touched by employees and customers is one of the main ways that COVID-19 spreads.

“Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by employees, contractors and customers.

“Put sanitizing hand rub dispensers in prominent places around the workplace. Make sure these dispensers are regularly refilled. Display posters promoting hand-washing, ask your local public health authority for these or look on www.WHO.int.

“Make sure that staff, contractors and customers have access to places where they can wash their hands with soap and water. Why? Because washing kills the virus on your hands and prevents the spread of COVID-19.

“Promote good respiratory hygiene in the workplace. Display posters promoting respiratory hygiene. Combine this with other communication measures such as offering guidance from occupational health and safety officers, briefing at meetings and information on the internet, etc.

“Ensure that face masks and/or paper tissues are available at your workplaces, for those who develop a runny nose or cough at work, along with closed bins for hygienically disposing of them.

“Why? Because good respiratory hygiene prevents the spread of COVID-19. Advise employees and contractors to consult national travel advice before going on business trips.

“Brief your employees, contractors and customers that if COVID-19 starts spreading in your community, anyone with even a mild cough or low-grade fever (37.3 C or more) needs to stay at home.”

WHO further advised that “employers should start doing these things now, even if COVID-19 has not arrived in the communities where they operate.”0

Published

Ghana

A Ghanaian lady who introduced herself as Auntie Kiki in a video attached to this story has sparked a wild debate online after she dropped a controversial statement that has since not gone done well with the slay queens and the lazy ass girls.

Auntie Kiki argued that girls should be responsible and work hard rather than depending solely on men, especially only texting them only when they are in need.

She said: “Auntie Kiki wants to clear a couple of things for you guys okay? I’m not going to be harsh on anybody. I’m just expressing a couple of truths. Young ladies, if you only text a certain guy because you want something from him, look at me I want you to know, you are a thief, big thief.”
