Manchester City‘s Premier League charges are discussed by the UK government embassy in Abu Dhabi and FCDO in London. Earlier, it was confirmed by the Premier League that Manchester City have been charged with 115 Financial Fair Play rules breach. This is between 2009 to 2018, over a nine-year period. The Premier League also alleged City not cooperating with the investigation and UEFA’s Fiancial Fair Play. In response, City completely denied the allegations though.
UK Govt looking into Manchester City charges
Now, in a report from Dan Sheldon of The Athletic, the UK government has admitted that its embassy in Abu Dhabi and FCDO in London have discussed about the “charges” on Manchester City. You can read the full report from The Athletic here. Manchester City manager Pep responded that the investigation should be resolved at the earliest when speaking in May 2023. He said;
“What I would like is if the Premier League and judges could make something as soon as possible. Then, if we have done something wrong, everybody will know it and, if we are like we believe as a club for many years, in the right way, then the people will stop talking about it.”
“We would love it tomorrow. This afternoon better than tomorrow. Hopefully they are not so busy and the judges can see both sides and decide what is the best, because in the end I know fairly what we won, we won on the pitch and we don’t have any doubts.”
“Let’s go. Don’t wait two years. Why don’t we do it quicker? In 24 hours, sit down with lawyers present. Let’s have it as soon as possible for the benefit of everyone.”
Since the Premier League charges were first made public, City have won an FA Cup, third successive Premier League and their first ever Champions League title.
