The ‘storm’ that came to Man City could be ‘hope’ for Steven Gerrard.
After a four-year investigation, the English Premier League (EPL) charged Manchester City with violating the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rule. Between 2009 and 2018, the EPL secretariat referred Manchester City to an ‘independent commission’ for breaching more than 100 financial rules. 토토사이트
The EPL Secretariat notes that Manchester City violated the UEFA FFP rules from 2013 to 2018 and the rules on profitability and sustainability from 2015 to 2018. In addition, it is judged that the regulations regarding the command tower remuneration from 2009 to 2013 and player remuneration from 2010 to 2016, when Roberto Mancini was in office, were also violated.
United Arab Emirates Abu Dhabi United Group bought Man City in 2008. Man City has emerged as an emerging powerhouse by conquering the EPL six times with ‘Oil Money’ at the fore. The 2011-2012 season, the 2013-2014 season, and the 2017-2018 season, allegations, also lifted the EPL championship three times. If Man City’s ‘guilty’ is confirmed, it can receive strong disciplinary action. Disciplinary measures such as expulsion from the league, relegation, point reduction, transfer ban, and even deprivation of past championships are being discussed. At the time of the Juventus match-fixing scandal, all of Juventus’ past records were erased.
In this case, the only championship trophy in his career could be given to Gerard, the ‘King of Unrelated’. Gerrard had a golden opportunity in the 2013-2014 season, but finished runner-up, two points behind Man City. At the time, Gerrard made a fatal mistake in the 36th round against Chelsea and was caught on his own. If Manchester City’s winning record is erased, Gerrard can wash the crown too.
