UEFA chief Ceferin: We know we were right about Man City's FFP breach


Aleksander Ceferin insists UEFA were "right" about Manchester City breaching Financial Fair Play rules. 

In February 2020, City were initially banned from the Champions League for two seasons by UEFA and fined €30m (£25m) after they were found to have seriously misled European football's governing body and broken Financial Fair Play rules.

However, in July 2020, the two-season suspension was lifted after an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), and the fine reduced from €30m to €10m. CAS indicated that "most of the alleged breaches" were "either not established or time-barred".

In February 2023, the Premier League charged City with 115 alleged breaches of the league's financial rules over nine seasons between 2009 and 2018, during which time they won the league title three times.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters says a date has been set for that hearing, but no exact date has been specified. Manchester City deny any wrongdoing.
