Report: Man City Faces Huge Fine, Reduced Squad, Wage Cap for FFP Breach

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City could see its UEFA Champions League squad reduced to 21 players instead of the usual 25 next season in addition to a fine in the region of 60 million euros ($83.6 million) over three years as well as a cap imposed for next season to ensure there is no rise in this season’s Champions League A squad wage bill, the Guardian reports, as punishment for failing to comply with UEFA’s financial fair play rules. According to the report, the so-called A squad would also have to include eight locally trained players.

Neither UEFA nor City would comment on the report, which alleged that Premier League title frontrunner has until the end of the week to reach a settlement with the European governing body over the sanctions. If no agreement is reached, then City faces the prospect of the case being handed to a panel for a non-negotiable decision.

Despite the tough sanctions, none of the clubs in breach of FFP rules are expected to be included in next season’s Champions League, as President Michel Platini indicated last month.
