The English Premier League Secretariat hinted at Manchester City’s disciplinary action on the 6th, saying, ‘Man City has violated the rules requiring accurate and fair data on the club’s financial condition.’
According to multiple UK media reports, Manchester City have violated more than 100 financial rules.
At worst, you could be expelled from the Premier League. Or, punishments such as deduction of points, ban on transfers, restrictions on spending, and deprivation of the title are also discussed. We still have to watch the situation more, but a punishment of more than 10 million euros (about 13.5 billion won) from the European Football Federation (UEFA) in 2020 seems likely. 안전놀이터
At the time, Manchester City were fined 30 million euros (about 40.6 billion won) along with a two-year ban from club competition by UEFA for violating the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rule between 2012 and 2016. However, as a result of the trial at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS), only a significantly reduced fine was imposed, and the crisis was overcome.
The matter is different this time. The data and evidence secured by the Secretariat are so vast, and it is impossible to file a CAS appeal after being disciplined according to the Premier League rules. It is expected that it will be an issue that is not easy to avoid for Man City.
You have to endure something as frightening as punishment. This is the departure of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. In May of last year, manager Guardiola was reported to have revealed, “If the club is lying to me, he will leave the team.” If the club didn’t give Guardiola accurate information about the rule violation, he declared that he would ‘cut it off’ Manchester City.
Guardiola is the man who made Manchester City what it is today. After taking over as manager in 2016, he led the team to four Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup titles. In the 2020-2021 season, they also achieved runner-up in the Champions League. After Les McDowell (592 games), who led the team from 1950 to 1963, the main character who worked for Manchester City for a long time is Guardiola.
Guardiola is the heart of the team and he may have to part ways with him if he is punished. He is the most painful scenario for Manchester City.
