NYON, Switzerland --

Manchester City will not be sanctioned by UEFA for fans booing the Champions League anthem.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel closed the case on Thursday.

The case was opened when UEFA's match delegate reported the jeering before City played Sevilla at home last month.

UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino later told the Associated Press that ''we have to not be offended by it (and) live with it.''

City fans have long-standing disputes with UEFA over past sanctions for breaching Financial Fair Play rules, and being barred from attending a match in Moscow after booking flights.
