Man City and Paris St-Germain 'are cheating and should be punished'

  • City could face UEFA and Premier League sanctions over alleged financial doping

"And of course we want to follow the rules, whether UEFA, FIFA or the Premier League", said the Spaniard, who joined City in 2016.

French Uefa president Michel Platini was the man behind FFP.

City have subsequently been accused in more leaked documents of an array of attempts to inflate and backdate sponsorship deals to "deceive" UEFA.

City were fined 60 million euros by UEFA in 2014 for breaching those rules, but the two parties reached an agreement under which the club would get 40 million euros back if they stuck to the terms of their settlement.

While the allegations could cause City problems off the field, Guardiola and his players insist they will have little trouble focussing on the task in hand at the Etihad on Wednesday. "After we have three or four days to think about United".

The Catalan coach has delivered a combination of thrilling football and results as City romped to the title with a record 100 Premier League points last season.

He was followed by another Fox News host, Jeanine Pirro , both of whom gave remarks from the lectern backing the president. "By the way, all those people in the back are fake news ", Hannity, who is not a journalist, said to cheers.

La Liga president Javier Tebas made a similar claim previous year, with European football's governing body Uefa responding by saying it was not investigating City, who have won the Premier League three times since Sheikh Mansour took over in 2008. "But I am part of the club and support the club absolutely and we want to do what we have to do in terms of the rules". Arabtec workers had gone on strike in May 2013, which was said to have resulted "in violence and deportations" and there had also been reports about the dire conditions in Abu Dhabi for migrant workers.

This rise coincided with UEFA creating rules - in consultation with the European Club Association - to limit spending within a club's ability to generate revenue.

Responding to the claims, City manager Pep Guardiola said he "trusts the club and what they have done".

Der Spiegel cited Man City documents in which officials wrote: "Without significant additional revenues". "The most important will be Shakhtar, first because it is the next one and second because it is a final". One memo from chief executive Ferran Soriano is said to have read, "We will need to fight this and do it in a way that is not visible, or we will be pointed out as the global enemies of football". It was supposedly used as a vehicle to disguise payments to players for the right to use their image in marketing campaigns.

PSG have already launched an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against UEFA's re-opened financial fair play investigation.

When auditors examined the arrangement on behalf of Uefa, they described it as a "very good deal for MCFC", with one analyst stating he was having difficulty understanding how Fordham expected to make a return.
