UEFA announced banning Manchester City from participating in the Champions League for the next two seasons, with a fine of 30 million euros (See details).
And now, according to the English newspaper “The Independent”, Citizens are at risk of deducting points in the English Premier League as a punishment for violating the laws of fair financial play.
The report added that some high-ranking sources will force the FA to apply sanctions to the team locally.
In the event that points are deducted, they will not contribute to the team’s fall or lead the struggle, especially after being banned from European posts.
If the team is excluded from the English Premier League, it may start again across the English third division after the recent competition laws were amended.
“They are upset, but we are not surprised.” This was the first response from the Manchester City administration to UEFA’s decision to ban the club from participating in the Champions League for the next two seasons (See details).
Manchester City are second in the Premier League with 51 points, 22 points behind leaders Liverpool.
