Fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports that claim clubs have appealed against City playing Champions League football next season.

According to reports in the Daily Mail, eight of the Premier League’s top ten clubs – with the exception of City and Sheffield United – have submitted a joint application to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) which will hear City’s appeal against their European ban imposed by UEFA following their breaking of Financial Fair Play rules.

According to WhoScored, who is City's top Premier League goalscorer so far this season?

In reaction to the reports, which were relayed by City Chief on Twitter, fans of the club have flocked to have their say on the matter, with many stating their fury at the reported actions of the clubs, while others have claimed that the actions of the clubs are purely out of jealousy.

What do we think?

The reported actions of the clubs – which include the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal – come following City’s appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, after UEFA handed City a two-year ban from European competition due to the club breaking Financial Fair Play rules.

As such, with City currently sitting second in the Premier League table and occupying one of the Champions League places, if City were not to feature in Europe’s elite footballing competition next season, it could open the door for Champions League football for the side who were to finish fifth in the league, which looks a very likely motive for the recently reported actions of the clubs.
