City are accused of breaching 115 regulations over the course of 14 seasons from the start of the 2009/2010 campaign. Among these are allegations of falsified financial reporting and noncompliance with the Premier League’s probe. The champions have refuted any wrongdoing, and manager Guardiola has recently taken aim at those who demand punishment for City. Furthermore, he maintained that he would stay at the Etihad Stadium even if City was proven guilty of the accusations.
The allegations were brought against City earlier this year following a five-year probe into purported financial regulation violations. Since the allegations were announced back in February, the Premier League and City have both kept quiet about the matter. However, theThe Daily Mail has revealed that a hearing date for the lawsuit has been scheduled for late autumn of 2024.
