Manchester City could face points deduction or Premier League EXPULSION as they are charged with breaking financial rules over 100 TIMES on sponsorship deals, secret contracts and financial transactions
- Pep Guardiola’s side could face a potential points deduction or expulsion
- Man City have been charged by the Premier League over financial breaches
- It comes following a four-year investigation into sponsors and contracts
The charges against the reigning champions relate to financial information regarding revenue, details of manager and player remuneration, UEFA regulations, profitability and sustainability and co-operation with Premier League investigations.
A statement from the league said alleged breaches were committed from September 2009 to the 2017-18 season and will now be referred to an independent commission. Manchester City are also facing charges for failing to cooperate with the investigation, which began in December 2018.
Manchester City have been charged by the Premier League for breaching financial rules more than 100 times in the space of nine seasons.
Should Manchester City be found guilty, they face a range of potential sanctions including a points deduction or even an expulsion – though it could take years to come to a conclusion.
Speaking in May last year, Pep Guardiola said he told Manchester City he would leave if he found out the club had lied to him about their financial affairs.
