He said: “Honestly, I do not know where such stories are emanating from. I’m surprised at the news because no such discussion or meetings have taken place between me and the club’s hierarchy as regards any form of coaching .

“Chelsea will forever be like home to me and if such contact were made I would gladly make it known but for now they are all lies and rumours.”

Mikel Obi is expected to return to action this weekend for Trabzonspor after serving his suspension, following his red card against Caykur Rizespor.

Champions League: UEFA reacts as CAS overturns Man City’s ban

UEFA has reacted to the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), to overturn Manchester City’s two-year ban from European competitions.

The ruling means City will play in the Champions League next season.

The former English champions have also had their fine reduced from £25million to £8.9million.

City had been banned by UEFA for breaking Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, but have had the decision overturned by CAS.

However, a statement from European ’s governing body on Monday, showed they were not happy with what they see as many of City’s alleged breaches being “time-barred.”

“UEFA notes that the CAS panel found that there was insufficient conclusive evidence to uphold all of the CFCB’s conclusions in this specific case and that many of the alleged breaches were time-barred due to the 5 year time period foreseen in the UEFA regulations.

“Over the last few years, Financial Fair Play has played a significant role in protecting clubs and helping them become financially sustainable and UEFA and ECA remain committed to its principles,” part of UEFA’s statement read.

On Monday morning, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), overturned Manchester City’s two-year ban from the Champions League.

UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) in February, handed the ban to the Etihad club, claiming it had breached Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations between 2012 and 2016.

CAS in a statement explained that “Manchester City FC did not disguise equity funding as sponsorship contributions, but did fail to cooperate with the Uefa authorities.”

It further reduced City’s original fine of 30m euros (£26.9m) to 10m euros.

Beyond the lifting of suspension and reduction of fines, today’s verdict has different implications for some of the top clubs in the Premier League.

First, it means that only two Champions League slots are available in England now, with champions Liverpool and City already qualified.

Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday, now means they cannot qualify for Europe’s biggest club competition officially.

However, Manchester United can make a late run for the top four places, if they continue their fine run of form with a win over Southampton on Monday night.
