What has been a bad week for Manchester City could become even worse as they could reportedly be stripped of the Premier League title they won in 2014 if they are deemed to have breached financial rules.
The reigning Premier League champions have already been slammed with a two year ban from European competitions by UEFA due to “serious breaches” of their financial fair play rules.
The club have appealed against the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but if it is upheld it is likely that the Premier League will also investigate their past dealings.
And according to the Daily Mail a commission could deduct points retrospectively, meaning their 2014 title win may be in danger.
Manchester City won their 4th league title in the 2013/2014 season edging out this season’s likely winners Liverpool with just four points in one of the closest title races in recent years.
But UEFA have stated that the period between 2012-2016 was when City overstated their sponsorship income, meaning that in theory the 2014 title win could be stripped and handed to Liverpool retrospectively.
