Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two season and have been slapped with a £25million fine by UEFA.
As reported by the Guardian, the reigning Premier League champions were found to have seriously misled European football’s governing body and broken financial fair play rules.
FFP, introduced in 2011 with the aim of encouraging football clubs across Europe not to overspend on players’ wages, restricts the amount club owners can put in to cover losses – and, crucially, this is where City’s fault is.
We’re simply speaking facts when we say the best players in the world want to play in the Champions League, If City aren’t in it for the next two years, where does that leave their superstar players?
Sergio Aguero and Aymeric Laporte would walk into any other team in the world – except maybe ours! – and they’re surely going to question whether they should stick around now.
Liverpool fans took to social media to discuss Kevin De Bruyne and the odds on him now joining the Reds, as he was a fan of the club growing up. This was Tweeted about so much that ‘De Bruyne’ was actually trending throughout the night!
