In the wake of Manchester City’s exoneration by the CAS, 'peace talks' have been held between the club and UEFA’s president in an effort to move forward without hostility.
Mike Keegan with the Daily Mail is reporting that Aleksander Ceferin and Khaldoon Al Mubarak held clear-the-air talks. The conversation, which was initiated by Al Mubarak, is believed to have been a fruitful one, with both men steadfast in their desire to usher in a new era of respect and friendship in order to end the attrition between the two parties.
Sources from Switzerland disclosed this information to Keegan and Sportsmail, noting that the call was made quickly following the announcement of CAS’s decision and that it was a brief but ‘cordial’ conversation.
The view from both sides is that the relationship between them is strained and in dire need of repair so that they can have a more beneficial bond moving forward.
