The investigatory chamber of the UEFA on the financial control over the clubs can request the ban of Manchester City in the Champions League. It is expected that Yves Leterme, the Head of the investigation group and ex-Prime Minister of Belgium will strive for the disqualification of the English club at least for one season.
Manchester City is accused of providing false information during the solution of the previous case in 2014. It was about the financial fair-play and the club provided false information about the sum of the sponsors’ agreements. The UEFA has already punished this club for violation of the financial restrictions. Then Manchester City was fined for 49 million pounds, the application for the Champions League was shortened and the restriction for the transfer payments was implemented for two seasons.
It is reported that the independent experts’ group headed by Leterme held the meeting with Manchester City’s representative in April, in Switzerland within the current investigation but had no convincing explanations.
It is still unknown whether the ban will be implemented for the next season or 2020/2021 season. Manchester City denies all accusations.
