City once again found themselves at the centre of a UEFA probe into their financial dealings after hacked emails were published by the German newspaper Der Speigel which claimed City falsely inflated the value of a sponsorship deal in order to mislead UEFA.

City have strongly denied any wrongdoing, as per usual, and have held meetings with UEFA in Nyon ahead of the impending decision which is expected by the middle of February.

The Etihad outfit have previously tried to have the case thrown out by the Court of Arbitration for Sport causing a delay to UEFA’s investigation.

Should City be found guilty they could be thrown out of the Champions League but we all just know they will appeal the case, win and UEFA will carry on pretending like they care about financial doping when they care about it even less than they care about racism.
