Manchester City can be kicked from the European tournaments
The EPL champions may not play in the next draw of the main club tournament of Europe.
Manchester City can pay for the violations made four years ago. Earlier, the German magazine Spiegel reported that the club violated the rules of financial fair play for 188 million euros in 2014.
It is reported that the Citizens often spend money directly from owner Sheikh Mastur, but do not mark it as sponsorship. UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin said that there was a trial in the case at the moment.
”We are assessing the situation. We have an independent body working on it. Very soon we will have the answers on what will happen in this concrete case,“ Mirror quotes the president.
UEFA considers the ban on transfers as not a sufficiently strong punishment, and therefore the club can be excluded from the Champions League.
