Erik ten Hag first manager to be asked about Man City's charge for financial rules
| Last updated
Erik ten Hag is the first Premier League manager to be asked about Manchester City's charge for financial rules.
Man City have been charged by the Premier League with 'numerous breaches' of financial rules following a four-year investigation.
The Blues have allegedly breached financial rules over a period of nine seasons. They are alleged to have not provided accurate financial information.
The club intend to 'robustly' defend themselves against the charges, which dates back from 2008 and goes on until 2018.

- Fans think they know what Pep Guardiola's next move if Man City are found guilty of breaching financial rules
- The possible sanctions Man City could face include EXPULSION from the league and stripping of titles
And the Manchester United boss was asked about the charges at his pre-match press conference ahead of his side's game against Leeds United.
However, he refused to comment on the charges Man City are facing, saying it's for 'others to deal with'.
"No, I don't have an opinion because I'm not here for financial regulations," he said. "I am a football manager. I have to stick to that and others have to deal with that."
Ten Hag also spoke about Man United's historic rivalry with Leeds as he showed his knowledge of the history of the two teams.
"It's about the match of the Roses," said the 53-year-old. "It's definitely a big game in this part of England, it's a big game for us. "We know we have Manchester City and Liverpool, but for our fans this means so much. Our players are aware of that and know what to do."
Man United, who currently occupy third spot in the table, face manager-less Leeds and a win would put them level on points with second-placed Manchester City.
