Man City ‘surprised’ by Premier League charges

Manchester City have said they have been left ‘surprised’ by charges brought about by the Premier League relating to hundreds of alleged financial breaches.

The Premier League announced on Monday morning that Manchester City have been charged with breaching regulations over 14 seasons from 2009/10 to this season


Uefa previously banned Manchester City for two years and fined the club €30 million (about £27 million) for alleged financial fair play breaches connected to sponsorship payments, though the ban was overturned, and the fine reduced to €10 million, by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which said “most of the alleged breaches were either not established or time-barred”.

Now, following the Premier League’s announcement, the reigning Champions have said they are ‘surprised’ by the ‘alleged breaches’, and ‘look forward to this matter being put to rest once and for all’.

“Manchester City FC is surprised by the issuing of these alleged breaches of the Premier League Rules, particularly given the extensive engagement and vast amount of detailed materials that the EPL has been provided with,” a club statement reads.

“The Club welcomes the review of this matter by an independent Commission, to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence that exists in support of its position.

“As such we look forward to this matter being put to rest once and for all.”

According to the Times, if the charges are proved, it could lead to a range of sanctions including a points deduction or even expulsion from the league.
