Former United defender Neville believes City's legal challenge will prove successful

Gary Neville has backed Manchester City to win an appeal against a two-season ban from European competition imposed by a "hopeless" Uefa.

European football's governing body announced Friday that City has been banned from continental competition for two seasons for what Uefa said were "serious" financial fair-play breaches between 2012 and 2016.

English Premier League champion City, who were also fined 30m euros ($32.5m), responded quickly to say they would appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

And former Manchester United defender Neville believes City's legal challenge will prove successful.

Jamie Carragher, a fellow Sky broadcaster, questioned the timing of Uefa's decision given Pep Guardiola's City face Spanish giant Real Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League later this month.
