Man City are in big problem and might be out of title race.

After defeating Liverpool 2-1 at their home, Man City title hopes have come alive again but they are set to be hit by a big blow by UEFA.

Just hours before the title-deciding clash between the premier league Champions and the table toppers Liverpool, Manchester City might face a Champions League ban for an alleged financial manipulation as per sources.

It is confirmed by UEFA the City could face Champions League ban over an alleged 60million payment fraudulence during the football leaks scandal.

The news though didn’t stop City from displaying an amazing second-half display that saw them winning the game but the question remains as to what lies at stake for the “citizens” when it comes to the Champions League.

“Will they play again? ” remains the top dilemma in the mind of every city fans and the players even after such a glorious win.

The UEFA and the Premier League after investigating the matter after they received information on leaked emails.

The German magazine, Der Spiegel have given information about the deception which shows a 59.5million pounds as to coming from sponsors Etihad Airlines was actually from owners Abu Dhabi United Group. If it’s proved, it would lead to a breach of UEFA ‘s financial fair play rules.

According to the UEFA’s head of Independent Financial Control body, Yves Leterme, this could lead “heaviest” punishment for the English champions which even includes the exclusion from UEFA competitions.

This is not the first time that speculations have hit City. 2014 was the other instance when City breached the FFP rules by 167million pounds according to Der Spiegel. The owner Shiekh Mansoor was accused of funding significant parts of so-called deals with the sponsors to escape UEFA regulations.

The city officials claim that it is an organized plan to damage the club reputation but only time has the answer for all these.
