According to the latest football news, Man City received the most severe punishment since the FFP. But to talk about the level of violations, the fact that the defending champion of the Premier League is far behind PSG.
Man City at the moment
Up to this point, the leadership and the City players have not been all shocked by the penalty that UEFA imposed. The defending Premier League champions will be banned from attending all European club competitions hosted by UEFA over the next two seasons (2020/21 and 2021/22) after being charged with “serious violations.” according to the commands of the UEFA (Financial Fair Law). Besides, they also have to pay a fine of 30 million euros in cash.
Man City received a very shocking sentence
Previously, the latest football news revealed that a months-long investigation was conducted by the Financial Control Committee of the European Football Federation (CFCB) on Man City. The man in charge of the investigation – former Belgian Prime Minister Yves Leterme has found evidence of a “Green Man” violation of UEFA’s Financial Equity Act.
The green half of Manchester spent 518 million pounds to buy players and earned 130 million pounds from selling players, a deficit of 388 million pounds. In return, City has made many great achievements, including 2 Premier League titles, 2 League Cups, 1 FA Cup, and, in last season, obtained all of the domestic leagues. Man City’s salary fund is also expanding to the point of difficulty. Pep Guardiola’s team eats up the Green Man’s £ 295.1 million salary every year. In particular, Pep alone was 21 million pounds.
However, at this time one has the right to question the fairness of UEFA. The European football regulator had a similar investigation, targeting the French champion – the mighty and rich PSG
In the summer of 2017, PSG shook the football world with the Neymar Junior deal. But in nominal terms, the Paris team does not pay a fee to have the service of the Brazilian superstar. Neymar previously signed an advertising contract according to a disclosure of enormous value to the state of Qatar, to promote the image for the host country of the 2022 World Cup.
The shocking latest football news that PSG created did not stop there. In the last days of the summer transfer window in 2017, the Prince’s Stadium team continues to welcome emerging superstar Kylian Mbappe from Monaco. PSG once again “slapped” on those who drafted the Financial Equity Act that UEFA has built. According to French media, these two deals alone cost PSG £ 335 million.
Can PSG laugh at the penalty that City has just received?
According to British Sport Mail allegations- the latest football news, the French champion actually spent £ 347.5 million on the 2017 summer market to recruit Neymar Junior, Kylian Mbappe and Yuri Berchiche. The Qatari donor, behind it, is a Qatari man, believed to be “an impotent aid” through sponsorship contracts. Qatari has signed a sponsorship contract of up to 700 million euros (£ 583 million) with PSG between 2012 and 2016. But this contract was rejected by UEFA because it was too lacking in authenticity.
Nevertheless, President Nasser Al-Khelaifi is a member of the UEFA Executive Committee. He also plays a key role at the beIN media group – UEFA’s largest partner. In September 2017, an investigation into PSG was conducted but so far the final result has been delayed.
The New York Times even revealed that there was an “impact” force that made UEFA investigators “turn a blind eye” to PSG. There is also information that, with the impact from FIFA, UEFA respects PSG owners – who also played an important role at the 2022 World Cup. Meanwhile, the boss of Man City is from the UAE, which is currently is a rival to Qatar.
Where is Man City’s future?
Apparently, Man City will do their all possible attempts to appeal to UEFA, explaining its innocence. In addition, the defending Premier League champion is also allowed to file a complaint with the Sports Court (CAS) to convict the sentence he has just received. While Man City received the bad news, many other English Premier League teams were probably happy.
Will MU (red shirt) win tickets from Man City?
For the teams trying to race top 4 like Chelsea, MU, Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton or Wolverhampton, this is really good news. They are waiting to see how the UEFA, as well as the organizing committee of the Premier League, will decide on the Champions League qualification that Manchester City is banned.
In the event that “The Citizens” cannot be charged but remains in the top 4 in the Premier League this season, according to Manchester Evening News, the team ranked fifth in the Premier League will win tickets. This case is considered unprecedented in the Premier League.
Currently, the latest football news cited the team that is ranked 5th in the Premier League is surprising “rookie” Sheffield United – the team has 39 points but plays earlier in round 26. Chances are still open for all the teams, because of the gap, while the season still has 13 rounds, from the 14th place is Crystal Palace to the 5th place is Sheffield now only 9 points.
