UEFA has slammed a two year ban on Premier League champions, Manchester City for breaching financial fair play rules.
City were found guilty of falsely inflating their sponsorship deals and revenues between 2012 and 2016.
UEFA announced their decision in a statement on Friday, writing: “Following a hearing held on 22 January 2020 the Adjudicatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB), chaired by José da Cunha Rodrigues, has today notified Manchester City Football Club of the final decision on the case which was referred by the CFCB Chief Investigator.
They have also been fined 30 million euros for serious breaches of the club’s licensing and Financial Fair Play regulations.
The ban means the club will not play in any European football competitions for the next two seasons.
Manchester city have the right to appeal the decision.
