WHAT State-backed club hasn’t broken 100 plus financial regulations governing Premier League football club finance? It hardly seems worth making a fuss about and yet Manchester City are in hot water and face the potential of serious punishment.
Aside from relegation and point deduction, WWN Sports have learned from the Premier League other possible punishments are on the table, including:
None, provided the United Arab Emirates announce a new £20bn per season sponsorship of the Premier League.
Being made favourite’s for next season’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Forced to start with a frontline of Paul Dickov and Shaun Goater.
In perhaps the most severe penalty, Guardiola could be forced to play at least one long ball per half.
Players must hold onto the one jersey all season and take turns washing the team kit.
Fans will be forced to wear half and half scarves at every game.
City will be forced to sell Kalvin Philips and Scott Carson to Chelsea for €400mn.
Guardiola must wear a Sports Direct bargain bin tracksuit on the touchline at all times.
When Guardiola finally resigns, he must be replaced by Jesse Marsch.
Fans will be forced to have their interior monologue narrated by Gary Neville.
Instead of a shirt sponsor next year, City will be forced to carry memes chosen by rivals fans on their jerseys.
Limited to buying fullbacks for under €60mn.
If the point deduction route is taken, City face the embarrassment of still being ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool.
