Manchester City may be in trouble after UEFA found the club guilty of financial fraud and suspended from European cups for two years. The English Premier League can apply its sanctions, because the rules of the financial fair play have been violated also domestically. The Independent, reports that the City may lose points in the championship of England.
The Premier League committees, according to the publication, have already discussed potential sanctions for ManCity, and the withdrawal of points is considered very likely. True, it is not indicated whether the sanctions will be adopted in the current season or next year.
Earlier it was reported that the club Zinchenko threatened to be exiled to the fourth division of England. Such punishment in relation to ManCity, in addition to the sanctions already adopted by UEFA, may apply the English football leadership.
Manchester City violated the rules of financial fair play between 2012 and 2016. “Citizens” intentionally overstated payments from sponsorship contracts to hide their losses. UEFA emphasized that the English club did not cooperate during the investigation.
If the punishment remains in force, then for the first time in 25 years in the Champions League there may not be a team from Manchester. ManCity was suspended from the European competition for two seasons, while Manchester United are weak in the current season.
