Fenerbahce out of Europe after CAS decision !

European football governing body,UEFA have sanctioned Turkish side,Fenerbahce,banning them from competing in Europe,because of their role in domestic match-fixing.
After their case was heard in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS),their appeal was thrown out ,which enforced the UEFA ruling.
Fenerbahce lost both legs of the Champions League to Arsenal,5-0 on aggregate,and it would have been a puzzle for UEFA to solve,had they gone through and CAS upholds their suspension.
The Turkish side were due to drop down to the Europa League,but the ban extends in all European competitions and they are set to equally miss out on next season’s Champions League qualifiers.
A UEFA statement said: “The UEFA Emergency Panel will meet on Thursday afternoon to decide on the consequences the confirmed exclusion of Fenerbahce SK from the 2013-14 UEFA club competitions will have on the UEFA Europa League.”
