Following a thorough investigation by the Premier League which started in 2018, City were hit with an unprecedented 115 charges for breaking Financial Fair Play Rules in February 2023.

Since coming under the sledgehammer of the Premier League, Manchester City have reportedly delayed the hearing of the case, as per Daily Mail.

However, the Premier League recently docked Everton 10 points in November 2023, and again slammed the Toffees with fresh allegations, including Nottingham Forest, referring both teams to an investigative panel for further action.

The clampdown on Everton and Nottingham has been met with a heavy backlash by fans, pundits, and football experts, who have slammed the English football governing for double standards and selective treatment with respect to the Manchester City saga.

They have been questioned for delaying a hearing on Manchester City while clamping down on smaller clubs with similar offenses.

As per the Mail, Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters was grilled by MP Dame Caroline Dinenage, who is the Chair of Media, Culture, and Sport, on what the Premier League is doing on Manchester City’s charges to restore fans’ confidence given their recent charges on Everton and Nottingham Forest.

Dame Caroline asked Masters, “Do you understand fans’ frustration that Manchester City is taking so long?’

Masters replied in the affirmative but added the character of Manchester City charges was different but revealed a date has been fixed to hear the charges.

“Yes, but they are different charges,” Masters said.

‘The volume and character of the charges laid against Manchester City are being held in a completely different environment.

‘I can’t give you any details beyond saying a date has been set for that proceeding. I can’t say when that is, but that is progressing,” he added.

Manchester City had insisted they are innocent and are ready to defend themselves against the charges.
