EPL rivals pushing for domestic City punishment

Premier League rivals pushing for domestic punishment for Man City over FFP breach

February 24, 2020 By Ali M.
The Citizens have been banned from Europe for two years and now clubs in England want the league to hand the Manchester giants their own sanctions.

Revelations surrounding Man City’s battle with UEFA and their FFP allegations continue to surface, with the latest reports claiming the club’s Premier League rivals are now pushing for the Citizens to be penalized domestically.

The Abu Dhabi-owned club have been banned from Europe by UEFA after being found guilty by European football’s governing body of overstating their sponsorship revenue. After this announcement, it was revealed that defending English top-flight champions could be penalized domestically as they are required to submit authentic information regarding their finances in order to obtain a Premier League license.

And according to the Athletic, many teams in England want to see the league organizers hand Guardiola’s side punishment. How they should be penalized is something their Premier League rivals are yet to agree upon but a severe repercussion is being demanded.

The Citizens rise to fame has left a bad taste in many teams’ mouths as the Etihad Stadium side spent left, right, and center to rise to the top of English football. Finding out that they breached FFP rules, all the while inflating the market, has not gone down well in the league but there is a consensus that relegating Man City to League Two – as some publications have suggested – would be too far.

As predicted, the Manchester giants have taken their fight to the Court of Arbitration of Sport where they appealed against the UEFA ban. The mega-rich side have denied any wrongdoing and have assured fans that they will get this sanction overturned.

However, they could lose their appeal, which would make the current Champions League campaign their last until 2022/23. De Bruyne and Co. are eyeing European success, with the Premier League race being all but over. Unfortunately, Real Madrid stand in their way of making the quarter-finals, with Guardiola’s side set to visit the Bernabeu this midweek.
