Carabao Cup Semi-Finalists Allowed To Make FIVE Subs This Week

The Carabao Cup semi-finalists will be able to make five substitutions in their matches this week in a move that will please Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

City take on Manchester United in Wednesday’s last-four League Cup clash with Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham facing London neighbours Brentford in Tuesday’s other tie.

As well as being able to make five in-game substitutions, the EFL also confirmed on Monday that teams are allowed to select nine players on their substitutes’ bench.

As per the five substitution rules currently in place across certain parts of European football, the four clubs have just three opportunities to make substitutions excluding half-time, full-time and half-time in extra-time.

Champions League Draw: Barcelona v PSG

Champions League Trophy

Barcelona were drawn against Paris Saint-Germain in the standout tie of the Champions League round of 16 on Monday morning.

The clash means that, if fit, Neymar will return to Camp Nou. The last time these teams met in the competition produced one of the most memorable matches in Champions League history as Barca — inspired by Neymar — won the round-of-16 second-leg clash 6-1 to recover from a 4-0 first-leg defeat. Neymar left in the summer of 2017, and this will be his first return.

Cristiano Ronaldo will make a return to Portugal as Juventus were drawn with Porto — a side he has mixed memories of playing against in the competition.

Guardiola Defends Aguero Over Touching Lineswoman

Aguero Touches Lineswoman

Pep Guardiola has defended Sergio Aguero after the striker was criticized for touching lineswoman Sian Massey-Ellis during Saturday’s win over Arsenal.

Aguero found himself at the centre of controversy just before half-time at the Etihad Stadium after he took exception to Massey-Ellis signalling a throw-in for Arsenal, when the striker believed it should have been City’s ball.

The striker confronted Massey-Ellis and grabbed her by the shoulder near her neck, before his arm brushed across her back. Massey-Ellis reacted by swatting Aguero’s arm away from her.

The incident caused plenty of strong reactions, with many believing the veteran striker had touched Massey-Ellis in an inappropriate fashion.

Lionel Messi Hands In Transfer Request

Lionel Messi Transfer News

We knew things were bad at the Camp Nou between the Barcelona players and the board. We knew that Lionel Messi was upset but still we were shocked when the news came out that Messi had activated a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave on a free transfer this summer.

Although his contract is set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, Messi and his legal team believe the clause will allow him to terminate his deal unilaterally.

Barcelona Board Consider Selling Messi

Lionel Messi Priceless

That is not a typo. Some members of the Barcelona board are actually in favor of selling the clubs best ever players, and one of the top five players ever to have played this game.

New Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has publicly said he wants to build the team around Messi, but ESPN is reporting that some directors say that they would be prepared to listen to offers that would allow Koeman to rebuild the team at the same time as reducing the wage bill.

Does Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu really want to be remembered as the president who sold Lionel Messi?

La Liga President Unhappy With Manchester City FFP Decision

UEFA

La Liga president Javier Tebas has criticized the decision to overturn Manchester City’s two-season ban from European football.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) confirmed on Monday that the Premier League club had been cleared of “disguising equity funds as sponsorship contributions” and would be allowed to enter into European competitions as normal.

Back in February, the club had received a two-year ban from playing in the Champions League or Europa League following a lengthy investigation from UEFA.

“We have to reassess whether the CAS is the appropriate body to which to appeal institutional decisions in football,” Tebas said on Monday, as quoted by BBC Sport’s Simon Stone.

Manchester City Champions League Ban Overturned

Manchester City Tickets

Manchester City have won their battle with UEFA and their two-year Champions League ban has been lifted.

The Premier League club were banned from European football for two years in February after UEFA found they had committed ‘serious breaches’ of its Financial Fair Play regulations.

But many of the alleged breaches were more than five years old while City, adamant that they had done nothing wrong, appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), who heard the case last month.
