Premier League clubs are demanding ‘swift justice and punishment’ for Manchester City if the club are found guilty of alleged financial breaches.
The Premier League announced on Monday that City had been charged with more than 100 alleged financial breaches, following a four-year investigation into the club’s financial conduct between 2009 and 2018.
Among the alleged offences include overstating sponsorship income to meet FFP regulations, with money reportedly brought into the club from their Abu Dhabi ownership and not sponsors linked to the Gulf State.
The Premier League champions have also been accused of failing to give ‘a true and fair view of the club’s financial position’, breaking UEFA’s and the Premier League’s FFP rules, and failing to cooperate in the investigation.
According to the Sun, Premier League rivals now want swift justice handed out to City should the club be found guilty, with potential punishments including points deductions or relegation from English football’s top division.
UEFA hit City with a two-year ban from European competition and €30m fine following an investigation into the club’s finances in 2020, though the ban was overturned and fine reduced to €10m following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
