UEFA Bans AC Milan From Europa League

UEFA said Wednesday it had banned AC Milan from the Europa League next season for violating financial fair play rules.“The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify for in the next two (2) seasons,” UEFA said it statement.

The Italian club had already qualified for the Europa League from 2018-2019, so the ban will take effect from then.

UEFA, however said AC Milan can appeal the decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The International Society of Media in Public Health (ISMPH) in collaboration with other relevant civil society organisations said an estimated 2.6 million Nigerian children within the age of 5 suffer from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). ISMPH who said humanity should be a priority to all, added that, health is recognised as a fundamental human rights because of its nexus with life.
