Suspended from participating in European competitions, Manchester City may lose points scored in the English Premier League (Premier League) this season. It is reported by The Independent.
The league has already discussed potential sanctions for the club. Scoring is considered a very likely decision, since violations of the financial fair play identified by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) are likely to run counter to the Premier League regulations.
It is noted that the team is unlikely to face exclusion from the Premier League. However, with such a development of events, the “townspeople” will fly to the fourth strongest English division.
The decision to disqualify Manchester City from European competition for two seasons was announced by UEFA on Friday, February 14th. The reason for the suspension was the club’s violation of the rules of the financial fair play. The statement said that the English team from 2012 to 2016 overestimated its sponsorship income on accounts and break-even information. In addition, Manchester City was also ordered to pay a fine of 30 million euros.
At the moment, Manchester City is in second place in the Premier League, with an asset of 51 points. The leading “Liverpool” ahead of the “citizens” by 22 points.
