Man Citeh and FFP

Post by 222gers » Sat Nov 03, 2018 5:53 pm

Leaked documents published by Der Spiegel show what had been fairly common knowledge that despite breaching FFP by £165 million, City were able to negotiate the fine down to £17 million. Plus, City's lawyer said in an email “ one down, six to go “ when one of the Uefa Club Finance Control body died. Bloody charming.

I would add that the above leniency in the FFP fine was negotiated secretly with the general secretary of Uefa. Talk about one law for the rich.

This has gone mainstream now with a piece on the BBC TV 6 o'clock news. City have retorted by saying it's all being done to besmirch their reputation. Ah, bless.
