Man City: Sky journalist shares who’s been pushing for charges
Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol has shared who’s been ‘pushing hardest’ for Man City‘s recent alleged charges from the Premier League.
The Lowdown: City accused…
The Sky Blues are alleged to have broken over 100 league rules by England’s top flight with the governing body announcing their accusations on Monday morning.
City were ‘surprised‘ by the development with some sources around the club maintaining their ‘confident’ position.
This comes nearly three years after UEFA attempted to ban City from the Champions League for two years with that punishment eventually rescinded by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
The Latest: Solhekol shares who’s been ‘pushing hardest’…
Speaking on Sky Sports News, reporter Solhekol has shared who’s been ‘pushing hardest’ for these charges against Pep Guardiola’s side.
“I’ve also been told, up to now, until yesterday, the clubs who’d been pushing hardest for these charges to be brought were some of the other members of the so-called big six.
“That’s not surprising, that Manchester City’s rivals would be looking for any kind of advantage that they could get.”
The Verdict: Crucial few months…
It’s perhaps inevitable that domestic rivals have been attempting to discredit City whilst ‘pushing hardest’ for the accusations against them.
The current league champions have looked near-unstoppable when at their best over the last few seasons, and before Arsenal recently, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Guardiola’s side could go on to dominate for years.
City narrowly beat rivals Liverpool to the title on the final day of last season with Ilkay Gundogan’s dramatic late comeback winner sealing a second-successive domestic crown.
The Blues have been imperious in recent seasons, potentially leading to rival club officials pushing even harder for these charges to be brought against City.
Until a final verdict is reached in court over the allegations, it appears City are set for a battle with both the league and its other biggest clubs.
