City hit back at possible ban

Manchester City have hit back after the article in the New York Times. “Manchester City FC is fully cooperating in good faith with the CFCB IC’s (Club Football Financial Body) ongoing investigation.”

Manchester City: “In doing so the club is reliant on both the CFCB IC’s independence and commitment to due process; and on UEFA’s commitment of the 7th of March that it will make no further comment on the matter while the investigation is ongoing.”

Manchester City: “Manchester City’s published accounts are full and complete and a matter of legal and regulatory record. The New York Times report citing ‘people familiar with the case’ is therefore extremely concerning.”

Manchester City: “The implications are that either Manchester City’s good faith in the CFCB IC is misplaced or the CFCB IC process is being misrepresented by individuals intent on damaging the club’s reputation and its commercial interests. Or both.”

Manchester City: “The accusation of financial irregularities are entirely false, and comprehensive proof of this fact has been provided to the CFCB IC.” [via ]
