Manchester City are facing fresh calls for a Champions League ban, with LaLiga president, Javier Tebas, telling UEFA not to let City off the hook because their “figures do not add up.”


City are under investigation, over a possible breach of Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

Tebas is one of the most powerful figures in European football and is determined to ensure that both City and Paris Saint Germain are punished, if there is evidence they have broken strict spending rules.

“I do know the Manchester City figures, where their income comes from and that figures don’t add up to a certain extent, if we take into account the market figure, so I think that some kind of penalty needs to be imposed.

“One of the major issues in European football is related to [financial] doping. Obviously, with PSG we were very aware of the accusations, because we have very solid evidence of this.


“In the case of Man City and the investigations that took place I’m not that aware of the circumstances of it as I’m not sure of the specificities of it. But obviously, a sanction needs to be imposed. There has been a lot of buzz about this.

“I think in some cases they (UEFA) have dealt with some FFP cases in the right way and for that they should be congratulated but there are two specific cases, Manchester City and PSG, which I think are not being dealt with correctly,” Tebas said according to the UK Mirror.
