first_img CSKA Moscow and Manchester City UEFA has decided to take no action against CSKA Moscow for having fans inside the closed stadium in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Tuesday night.Some 200 to 300 people supporting the Russian outfit were inside the Khimki Arena for the Champions League encounter, despite the game being ordered to be played behind closed doors after previous offences from the home fans.But UEFA is satisfied that rules were followed at the match and has opted not to further punish CSKA.Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has already claimed it was “unacceptable’” his side were not allowed any supporters at the game.The Belgian defender said: “You say ‘no fans’ then all of a sudden you turn up and basically the only team that hasn’t got fans is Man City. So who’s getting punished? Who is being done for racism? Man City or Moscow?”UEFA chief of press Pedro Pinto said the ‘supporters’ were guests of sponsors, staff or parents of ball boys who are not covered by the stadium ban, which was imposed for racist behaviour by fans.He added: “The game was still played behind closed doors – we have sponsors that get tickets to every game even when sanctions are involved, as do staff and the parents of the ball boys, and that was the situation yesterday.“As far as the corporate guests are concerned we cannot control what they wear or if they take scarves or flags but there was no inappropriate behaviour or banners.“Less than three per cent of the stadium was used and the club do not get gate receipts and enjoy the product that is the Champions League – they were still penalised.” 1last_img read more
