The Premier League has sued Manchester City for breaching its financial rules. There are four different charges in total, for various offenses between the 2009/2010 and 2017/2018 seasons.
It is unclear what punishment Manchester City can receive. The Premier League has announced that the hearings will take place behind closed doors. According to English media, City would risk points deduction.
A statement from the Premier League said Manchester City had failed to comply with the rule requiring clubs to provide “accurate financial information that accurately reflects the club’s financial position”.
It is not the first time that Manchester City has been accused of breaking financial rules. UEFA wanted to ban the club from European football for two years in 2020, but City successfully appealed to sports tribunal CAS.
Manchester City has been in Arab hands since 2008. The owners spent hundreds of millions on new players and modernizing the accommodation. City have since been champions of England six times, four of them in the past five years.
In 2021, manager Pep Guardiola’s team reached the final of the Champions League, in which Chelsea was too strong. Orange international Nathan Aké is under contract with the current number two in England.
