Soriano breaks Man City silence: Allegations not true - simply not true

Soriano breaks Man City silence: Allegations not true - simply not true

Manchester City could face possible points deduction in the Premier League and a possible relegation to League Two, following a Champions League ban.

Soriano stated that it was important to release a response since the club wanted to send a message to the stakeholders, the fans and the Manchester City "family" around the world. This is just another challenge.

"They are simply not true", Soriano said of the allegations.

"The fans can be sure of two things".

"If the negative experience that we had and the way this process went is negative, it's negative also for them".

The Independent claims that the Football League has recently changed their rules so that any club in a situation similar to the one Manchester City is in must start again in League Two.

Tonight, after the Premier League game against West Ham, Pep Guardiola is expected to make his first impression of the penalty.

"Obviously, (Pep) has been informed about this process, but it is not something he should respond to". He is focused on the football, he is focusing on the game, the game at hand, the game today, tomorrow and the next weeks.

The club were also found to have been uncooperative in investigations into the case. "We delivered a long list of documents and support that we believe is irrefutable evidence that the claims are not true", said the Spaniard.

The club released a statement on their official website outlining that they were "disappointed but not shocked" by UEFA's decision and that they would "pursue and impartial judgement" on the issue with the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The reigning Premier League champions are accused of overstating their sponsorship revenue in accounts submitted between 2012 and 2016 by European football's governing body. Soriano, who described the players as calm and focused, hopes the appeal to the Cas will be heard swiftly.

Man City play their first game since being hit by the European suspension and 30-million-euro ($32.5 million) fine against West Ham in a Premier League game on Wednesday, postponed from last weekend by bad weather.

He added: "Well, we did cooperate with this process".

"That is the most likely as it would give City some certainty while they prepare for a full hearing without risking their chances of being in the Champions League next year".

"This is a case initiated by UEFA, prosecuted by UEFA and judged by UEFA".
