In a verdict passed on Friday, February 14, it was revealed that a huge percentage of Man City’s sponsorship was funded by City’s owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the Abu Dhabi ruling family from his own purse.
From City shirt, stadium to the club’s academy, the English champions were discovered to have been given financial backing by Sheikh Mansour instead of the club’s revenue purse.
Meanwhile, the pronouncement means Pep Guardiola and his boys will not take part in any UEFA’s elite competition from next season and would also be made to pay the heavy fine for deliberate breaching of the rules and code of conduct.
The scale of the ban utmostly reflects UEFA’s strict position on offences bordering on breaking of the body’s rules and regulation.

The scale of the ban utmostly reflects UEFA’s strict position on offences bordering on breaking of the body’s rules and regulation. Man City have however denied wrongdoings in a statement released by the club after the judgement was delivered.

 ”This is a case initiated by UEFA, prosecuted by UEFA and judged by UEFA,” Man City said in an official reaction statement. ”With this prejudicial process now over, the club will pursue an impartial judgment as quickly as possible and will therefore, in the first instance, commence proceedings with the Court of Arbitration for Sport at the earliest opportunity.”

Earlier, babynaija had reported that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has made it clear that the club’s chiefs could fire him if his wards should fail to beat Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 encounters.
Currently, on the Premier League standings, Manchester City are 22 points behind leaders Liverpool and the Reds have even been tipped to be crowned champions.
