The City urgently gathers the staff to give explanations

first_imgThe players were summoned for noon today. It has been, as explained in its website the English newspaper, an informational meeting with the players to expose the future of the team and, above all, what can directly affect the players. The penalty requires a real reorganization of the club’s accounts, whereby, for example, the income budget and, therefore, the salary item could be reduced. That directly influences the squad since next season. The City has announced that it will appeal the ruling, but one way or another it will have to adjust its accounts to the requirements of UEFA’s financial control. Manchester City has set up a crisis cabinet to take the next steps before the penalty of two years of exclusion from European competitions by UEFA, mainly due to violations of the regulation of financial control. As much as the club expected punishment, it has generated a situation of gigantic uncertainty about the future of the team. In this way, as the Telegraph newspaper explains today, Ferran Soriano, executive director of the entity, shortly after knowing the ruling publicly, organized an emergency meeting with the players through the WhatsApp group of the team.last_img read more
