UEFA Confirms Manchester City Face A Champions League Ban

UEFA have confirmed Manchester City could face a Champions League ban, should allegations of financial manipulation be proved.

Both UEFA and the Premier League are investigating Manchester City, after emails leaked by German publication, Der Spiegel appeared to show £59.5million reported as coming from sponsors Etihad airline, was actually from owners Abu Dhabi United Group.

If proved, the allegations would amount to a breach of UEFA’s financial fair play rules and according to the European governing body’s head of independent Club Financial Control Body, Yves Leterme, could lead to the “heaviest punishment” for the Premier League champions.

Speaking to Belgian outlet Sport and Strategy, Leterme said: “If it is true what has been written, there might be a serious problem. This can lead to the heaviest punishment: exclusion from the Uefa Champions League.

“If the information is correct, this possibly goes against truthful reporting. The financial fair play rules are based on a system of declaration, three months after the clubs have closed their accounts, they have to deposit their figures.

“Then we do random checks on the truthfulness of those figures. The accounts are examined and approved internally and externally.”
