Manchester City’s fate could be under further scrutiny following their violation of Financial Fair Play regulations.
UEFA has already banned them from participating from any of their tournaments for two seasons. That means no Champions League or Europa League football for the Premier League champions.
Now, shocking reports are emerging that City could be stripped off their 2014 Premier League title as well. The club was charged for breaching FFP rules from 2012 to 2016. The FA will take that decision accordingly if they conclude the same after their own investigation. City are also in danger of losing their 2012 title but very little evidence suggests misdemeanour during that exact period.
A 22-point gap behind Liverpool in the Premier League seems much less important right now for the Cityzens. Things are about to boil over if the situation is not brought under control by the owners. The club is in danger of losing both Pep Guardiola and their best players.
Otherwise, Liverpool fans will be overjoyed if City did get dealt this ultimate blow. That would mean the 2014 Premier League title would be handed over to the Reds who finished two points behind City that season. For years, the Merseyside outfit and Steven Gerrard were ridiculed for his slip against Chelsea that eventually led to them conceding the title. They seem to already have the title under wrap this season but winning another would put them on level with Manchester United and also end their drought six years earlier.
