Manchester City went on the offensive after Uefa moved a step closer to punishing the club for allegedly breaching Financial Fair Play rules.

The English champions said they were “disappointed, but regrettably not surprised” after European football’s governing body sent the case to the adjudicatory chamber, the committee that has the power to kick City out of the Champions League.



UEFA are unlikely to throw City out of next year’s Champions League without establishing guilt but Leterme and his fellow board members are believed to have taken the view that a season-long ban from the competition would be a suitable punishment if the club are found guilty.



UEFA are determined to crack down on clubs that break the restrictions on spending.

City responded with an angry statement, which read: “The decision contains mistakes, misinterpretations and confusions fundamentally borne out of a basic lack of due process and there remain significant unresolved matters raised by Manchester City FC as part of what the club has found to be a wholly unsatisfactory, curtailed, and hostile process.” The club are determined to fight their corner and, if found guilty, will take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

City are accused of misleading UEFA over sponsorship payments.

A Portuguese hacker last year leaked internal emails to German magazine Der Spiegel which suggested that the club had falsified financial information provided to UEFA.
