UEFA has welcomed the Court of Arbitration for Sport's decision to reject both the appeal lodged by Legia Warszawa against the UEFA Appeals Body decision of 14 August 2014 and the request for financial compensation of €1,854,385 made by the Polish club at the CAS.

In rejecting both requests, the CAS has confirmed the approach taken by the UEFA disciplinary bodies as regards the ineligibility of Legia Warszawa player Bartosz Bereszyński in the match Celtic FC v Legia Warszawa played on 6 August 2014.
