Manchester United fans shouted slogans of ridicule towards rivals Manchester City, who are in danger of relegation.
British media The Sun reported on the 9th (Korean time) that “Man Utd sang slogans mixed with mockery towards Man City, who are in danger of being relegated in the match against Leeds.”
The Sun said, “Man Utd’s cheering squad sang, ‘Man City will be relegated with 1 billion pounds in the bank (approximately 1.5 trillion won)'” and reported the image of Manchester United fans mocking Manchester City for violating financial rules. .
The Premier League Secretariat announced in an official statement on the 6th that Manchester City had committed numerous violations of the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules and were prosecuting them.
The information announced by the Premier League Secretariat includes the manager’s salary from the 2009/10 season to the 2012/13 season, the salary regulations for the players from the 2010/11 season to the 2015/16 season, and the FFP 스포츠토토from the 2013/14 season to the 2017/18 season. Regulations, regulations on profitability and sustainability from the 2015/16 season to the 2017/18 season, and violations of the regulations of stakeholders in partnership with the club from December 2018 to the present, including violations of the rules in various parts. the truth has been revealed
Regarding the announcement of the Secretariat, the British media reported that “Man City has violated more than 100 financial rules in 9 years,” and “in the worst case, a point reduction or league expulsion may be imposed.”
Manchester City had been disciplined by the European Football Federation (UEFA) for similar content two years ago. At the time, there was a high possibility of receiving various sanctions, but CAS (Sports Arbitration Court) withdrew most of the sanctions due to the expiration of the statute of limitations and insufficient evidence, and applied only the part that was not cooperative with the investigation.
However, the current situation is more serious. Since there is no statute of limitations and the Premier League has secured enormous evidence of Manchester City’s violation of rules, the possibility of a point reduction and expulsion from the league is not small.
In the end, after the current owner Sheikh Mansour’s takeover of the club in 2008, Man City, which invested a huge amount of money and reigned as the strongest in the league, was put in the worst crisis in the club’s history due to this statement.
Meanwhile, The Sun also conveyed the self-deprecating voices of Manchester City fans, saying, “The Manchester United fans’ song this time came from the Man City fans criticizing themselves.”
In the midst of various media that it will take a long time for man city’s charges and discipline, it is expected that man city’s fans will continue in the process of playing the league this season.
