City were handed the ban in February by Uefa’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB), and were fined the club 30m euros.

The body had ruled that the Etihad club committed “serious breaches” of Uefa’s Financial Fair Play regulations between 2012 and 2016.

The CFCB also said City had failed to cooperate with the investigation.

City lodged their appeal late February, saying it was “simply not true” that they had breached the rules.
