Shockwaves were sent through English football on Monday when the ruling was confirmed via a lengthy Premier League statement. . City are accused of breaking more than 100 financial laws between 2009–10 and the present, which might subject the Sky Blues to a number of fines.
Although it has been stated that officials are unlikely to contemplate retroactive measures, such as nullifying titles won years ago, points deductions, being stripped of titles, spending restrictions, transfer bans, and even relegation are all expected to be on the table.
