His natural interest in sports led him to successfully analyse issues of an extended list of sports like football, futsal, basketball, and esports, among many others.

This experience led Manuel to be part of several CAS matters. Further, Manuel is actively involved in organising ISDE’s Master in International Sports Law. He has been involved in legal issues concerning the 2019 FIFA World Cup and Germany’s bid to host the UEFA European Football Championship 2024.
