'It could be': talkSPORT journalist shares potential outcome to Man City’s FFP charge

TalkSPORT journalist Alex Crook has shared some details on what the possible outcome could be if Manchester City are found guilty of any FFP charges.

Back in February, the Premier League charged the Manchester club with over 100 breaches of Financial Fair Play set to have taken place between 2009 and 2018.

In response, the club, who have just won their third league title in a row, said in a statement that they are surprised by these allegations given the "extensive engagement and vast amount of detailed materials that the EPL has been provided with."

With Pep Guardiola recently sharing his hopes of seeing the matter get put to bed in a quick fashion, one journalist has shed some light on what could be facing the club if the charges are held up and proven.

He said: "I don't see a scenario where Man City actually get stripped of any trophies.

"I think if they are found guilty and it's a lot of irregularities, then it could be a very serious point deduction, but I think it'll be a points deduction at the time they're found guilty as opposed to a scenario where we go back and they're stripped of any trophies they've won in the past.

"It might just make it more challenging for Pep Guardiola mightn't it, if he starts the season on -10"

With the club mentioning in their statement back in February that they are looking forward to seeing the situation get resolved due to the "comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence" they have in their favour, this should reassure any City supporters that may be concerned about a potential punishment from the Premier League.

Now that Crook has dispelled any possible fear at seeing any of City's previous titles get taken away should they get found guilty of any financial breaches, this should also be a relief for any supporters worried about that being a potential outcome.
