The Premier League champions were charged with multiple breaches of Financial Fair Play rules by the Premier League on Monday, with the club potentially facing a points deduction if found guilty. While City expressed their “surprise” at the accusations in a statement, their fans joked that the club may not play in Europe for a while.
Shortly after the Premier League announced the charges, City’s supporter services account tweeted information about tickets for their upcoming Champions League clash with RB Leipzig.
