Man City is Undergoing Investigation for Allegations of FFP Violations

MAN CITY – UEFA has started an investigation against Manchester City for the allegation of financial fair play violations. In the last few months, allegations are being published in various media outlets against Man City for violation of FFP rules. Following the allegations, UEFA issued the orders for investigation against Manchester City. In its statement, Manchester City spokesperson simply rejected all the allegations but declared it “false.”

Man City said, “The accusation of financial irregularities is entirely false. Manchester City welcomes the opening of a formal Uefa investigation as an opportunity to bring to an end the speculation resulting from the illegal hacking and out of context publication of City emails. The club’s published accounts are full and complete and a matter of legal and regulatory record.”

Uefa said the investigation “will focus on several alleged violations of FFP that were recently made public in various media outlets”.

FFP rules say that the amount clubs spend on their players and wages should be nearly equal to their earning in commercial revenue and prize money. It is not for the first time that City has been facing such an investigation in the case of misconduct. In 2014 also, City was found guilty of breaching FFP rules by UEFA and it faced a fine of 49million euros which was later reduced to 17 million euros following the suspension of 32 million euros. An exemption of 32 million euros was made in a deal to reduce City’s Champions League Squad for 2014-15.

The Football Association is also looking into claims that City made a banned 2,00,000 Euros payment to Jadon Sancho’s agent when the England winger was 14 years old. A post published in German media, Der Spiegel claimed that City had “deceived” European football’s governing body. It claimed that City and its sponsors manipulated contracts to wipe out Euro 9.9 million shortfall in 2013 and circumvent FFP regulations. If City is found guilty in the present case then the club will be banned from Champions League. And if it happens, this will not be good news for all the people put their stakes in sports betting on this club on various online betting sites such as dewabet.

UEFA has refused to comment on this issue until the investigation is not over. Also, it said it would reopen FFP investigations on a “case-by-case basis” if it finds any evidence of “abuse.”

Manchester City chairman Pep Guardiola said that he has been assured by the City Manager and CEO that the club will not be banned.
