Jose Mourinho slams Man City on alleged FFP breaches

Jose Mourinho slams Man City on alleged FFP breaches

Abu Dhabi-owned City said last week they would not comment on "out of context materials purported to have been hacked or stolen from City Football Group and Manchester City personnel and associated people".

Spanish league chiefs have called on UEFA to punish Paris St Germain and Manchester City following the latest explosive leaked documents about their financial activities.

Der Spiegel has also claimed that City struck a deal with UEFA to avoid a Champions League ban when it was found they had breached FFP rules, and that a third-party company to which they sold player image rights was also funded by the Sheikh.

An editorial in Der Spiegel said: "For years now, the Manchester City football club has vehemently denied that its owner, the sheikh of Abu Dhabi, broke financial rules".

Der Spiegel is planning to publish further stories related to City on Wednesday and Thursday.

Allegations In the latest allegations to plunge City into turmoil, it is alleged a risk analysis regarding a possible deal with Arabtec was carried out by executives but that, despite the report concluding a partnership with the company would have "significant potential to damage the perception and standing of the club and its owners", the club struck an agreement regardless, signing a regional contract that would be publicised only in Arab states, Russian Federation and Turkey, where there was considered to be less risk of condemnation.

Der Spiegel said this helped turn nearly 30 million euros ($34 million) into revenue instead of a cost, for the objective of UEFA's investigation of club accounts.

"I am a manager".

However, leaked internal emails in German publication Der Spiegel look to confirm that City's wealthy owners have pumped millions of pounds into the club outside the permitted limits of the FFP rules, using their other Abu Dhabi based investments such as "Etihad Airlines" as an aid to bend the rules.

Manchester City are seemingly a clean and organised club and that can be made out from their nature in the game and off it as well. And we want to do what we have to do in terms of the rules.

"I'm a manager. I'm completely out of how we handle this situation".

Guardiola added that City "have to live with" suggestions they have bought their success.

"If people say it's just about money we accept it - but that point of view is completely wrong", he said. "But we focus on what we have to do on the pitch".

But the City full-back says it is up to the players to get supporters back on side first by beating Group F rivals Shakhtar Donetsk then powering their way to glory in Madrid next May. "After we have three or four days to think about United".
