Manchester City transfer ban: UEFA warn the top European clubs for financial irregularities amid Man City ban from Champions league next season.
Manchester City are facing a trial for alleged financial irregularities and can be banned for a season from the Champions league, if found guilty.
Further, according to a report by the New York Times suggests that the investigators involved finds the ban suitable for the Pep Guardiola’s side.
However, a binding decision on Manchester City is yet to be taken by the governing body and is expected to release it soon.
Meanwhile, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin in an interaction with the New York Times has revealed that the governing body of European football will not hesitate in taking strict steps against the big clubs in Europe, if they break the rules.
“Sometimes we forget how dirty this industry is,” Ceferin told the New York Times.
Although, the possible ban on Manchester City have been questioned by the club and several critics but Ceferin further added.
“If you do it right, you don’t sell yourself. If you are not involved in any strange business, if you are not corrupted, then you go straight forward and be fair to anyone.”
Therefore, it sounds as an alarm ring for the club, who tend to dodge Financial play regulations, despite exploiting the monetary limits while purchasing extensively.
However, Manchester City have denied all the accusations and released a statement against the claim by slamming it as “a wholly unsatisfactory, curtailed, and hostile process.”
The club was earlier also penalized with a restriction on transfer spending after an initial breach in 2014 while PSG’s dealings have also been investigated.
On the brighter side, Manchester City are fortunate that the ban is unlikely to be implemented for the next season’s competition because the Citizens could appeal, and even take their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
