In fact, the luxuriant groves related to financial problems Man City started in 2013 and was first revealed in May 11/2018, it is also the time period above 5 years have passed.
Details of the provisions of FFP
Main UEFA has confirmed this in a statement after the CAS ruling, that "there are many violations" have been cut because of provisions in the laws of FFP. Former players Gary Lineker England was the first for the UEFA questioned about the irony of this, that why UEFA wanted to punish Man City once they know this will be against him.
