Manchester City say they're 'disappointed but not surprised' by UEFA's decision to ban the club from the Champions League for two seasons.

UEFA announced the punishment for what they've described as a 'serious breach of Financial Fair Play rules' on Friday and also issued the club with a £25 million fine.

However, City are determined to fight the punishment, which they claim was expected as a result of UEFA's biased and flawed investigation.
