Manchester City could be kicked out of the Premier League, according to the champions' former financial adviser
The current English champion Manchester City he is threatened with a drastic punishment, but the decision of the highest authorities will have to wait for some time.
"Citizens" are accused of violating the rules from 2009 to 2018, twice as much as the period for which UEFA has already fined the club 30 million euros and banned it from playing in Europe for two years.
This is a much more serious case that could have very serious consequences for the City. Stefan Bornson, the club's former financial adviser from the Etihad, shares this view.
- Allegations made by the Premier League against the club must, if proven, result in relegation. City will probably hire 50 lawyers for this, but so will the Premier League. City have no advantage over the league in this case.
A case like this is too big for the Premier League's current legal team and there is no way the whole process will be completed quickly. I imagine it will be years and years before a final decision is made on this case, but I expect a heavy sentence – Bornson said.
