Manchester City has come out quickly in response to the tough penalty imposed by UEFA, which condemns two seasons without contesting European competitions and a fine of 30 million euros. The club, “disappointed”, confirms that it will resort to the Court of Sports Arbitration to try to reduce the punishment and, in addition, charges heavily against the body, which it accuses of not acting impartially and of issuing a verdict when it had not even been Started the investigation. This is the full statement: “Manchester City is disappointed, but not surprised by today’s UEFA Chamber announcement. The club has always requested the need to seek an independent body and an impartial procedure. In December 2018, UEFA’s head of investigation publicly anticipated the result and the penalty he intended to send to Manchester City, even before any investigation began. The subsequent UEFA process was defective and constantly leaked left little doubt of its outcome. The club has formally complained to the UEFA disciplinary body, a claim validated by the Sports Arbitration Court.Simply put, this is a case initiated by UEFA, processed by UEFA and judged by UEFA. With this harmful process now over, the club will seek an impartial trial as quickly as possible and, therefore, in the first instance, will begin the necessary proceedings before the Court of Sports Arbitration as soon as possible.“.
The agent of Geoff Cameron expects the Stoke City midfielder to eventually return to MLS.The USA international recently penned a new deal.Gary Mellor told The Sentinel: “I think he’ll return to the MLS at some point in his career, without a doubt – but I would say he’s a different case from English footballers. If you’re Glenn Whelan or Charlie Adam you have been playing since you were a teenager so many times, in America you’re protected for longer.“Geoff didn’t turn professional until he was 24. English players have had about eight years of intensive football by then. He hasn’t had that and that’s why at his age he’s still playing like someone in their mid-20s.”

Guests raised a glass to the opening of the new base village at Snowmass, the largest one under construction in North America, and the debut of the third Limelight Hotels property, Limelight Snowmass.Over an entrée of smoked buffalo milk or swordfish, guests were given an overview of Aspen Snowmass, which features four mountains over 14 kilometres, linked by shuttles that run regularly until 2am, a boon for those looking to take advantage of Aspen’s renowned nightlife. Snowmass is set to be a favourite with families, with 95% of its accommodation offering ski-in, ski-out convenience. Although Aspen’s international reputation is one of glitz and glamour, the resort still has its roots in a 19th-century silver-mining town. Even those who don’t ski can take advantage of the picturesque destination and explore the valley, its art galleries and its museums.Image © Jordan Curet, courtesy Aspen SnowmassOf Aspen Snowmass’ 30% international visitation, Australia comes in at the top, followed by Brazil, Argentina, the UK, Mexico and Canada, with the latest Snowmass village development sure to make the resort even more popular.
