The club says they are “disappointed but not surprised” by the announcement. They added they “always anticipated” that they would need “an independent body to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence in support of its position”.

They go on to call the process “flawed” and that the “consistently leaked” nature of the process left them in “little doubt in the result he would deliver”. They have already formally complained to the Uefa Disciplinary body.
