Man City To Face Premier League Points Deduction After UEFA Ban

Man City To Face Premier League Points Deduction After UEFA Ban

Manchester City are ‘highly likely’ to face a Premier League points deduction after they were banned by Europe’s football governing body UEFA.

Man City were banned from participating in the Champions League for two years and also received a £25million fine for breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

According to The Independent, the Premier League will be forced to act due to its own licensing, which pertains to UEFA’s FFP rules.

UEFA’s Adjudicatory Chamber found that Man City overstated its sponsorship revenue.

Although Man City’s Champions League ban could be overturned, that is unlikely to be the case for any punishment that they face from the Premier League.

The report indicates that Premier League committees had already discussed potential punishments in the event that UEFA punished Man City.

The Premier League champions are currently in second place in the Premier League on 51 points, 22 points adrift of runaway leaders Liverpool.

They will take on Spanish giants Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16.

    I don’t care a hoot about what happens to this Club. They don’t care equally about having Nigerian players in their team.

    @Edoman my lovely friend, it’s okay I understand your frustration. Man City is like Man United and other clubs. I hope they change their thinking sooner or later.

    However, if our league is that good, I’m pretty sure that none of our players will be playing outside Nigeria. Including your favorite player, Ighalo and my own pikin, Aribo.

    Don’t blame Man City for that my lovely Edoman but NFF.

    This is why I can’t do without quoting section 419 of my constitution. Sorry for quoting this section. The section says, if we can’t beat them then, we join them. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
