Manchester City have said they are "surprised" that they have been accused of multiple breaches of financial rules by the Premier League

The alleged breaches span the 2009/10 to 2017/18 seasons. The club is accused of breaching league rules, which require it to provide "accurate financial information which is a true and fair reflection of the club's financial position" in 'extreme good faith'.

The second set of breaches listed concerns alleged breaches of rules relating to the 2009/10 to 2012/13 seasons "requiring member clubs to include full details of managerial remuneration in relevant contracts with their managers".

The club's manager during that period is current Italy coach Roberto Mancini.

The second set of alleged breaches also involved requiring clubs to include full details of player remuneration in relevant contracts from the 2010/11 season to and including the 2015/16 season.

The third part deals with alleged breaches of Premier League rules requiring clubs to comply with UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations between 2013/14 and 2017/18.

Manchester City had a ban from European football for two years overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) - after being suspended by UEFA's Financial Control Body (CFCB) in February 2020 for "serious breaches" of the club's licence and financial fair play.

The fourth set of alleged breaches concerns the Premier League's profitability and sustainability rules in the 2015-16 and 2017-18 seasons.

Finally, the club has allegedly breached league rules since December 2018, requiring member clubs to cooperate with the Premier League and assist them with their investigations.

That the staggering number of charges against Manchester City means that if they are found guilty it will certainly lead to relegation, has anyone questioned?
