Ex-Premier League CEO points blame for 'crisis' over Man City's 115 FFP charges case at one individual

Ex-Premier League CEO points blame for 'crisis' over Man City's 115 FFP charges case at one individual

The ex-chief has slammed one individual.

A former CEO of a Premier League club has slammed one individual for the crisis over Manchester City's 115 financial charges.

On Sunday Man City were crowned Premier League champions, becoming the first English club to win the top flight title four years in succession.

However, the remarkable achievement of Pep Guardiola and his players has been overshadowed by the 115 financial charges facing the club.

In February 2023, the Premier League charged City with 115 breaches of financial rules related to a nine-year period between 2009 and 2018.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said that City's case - heard before an independent panel - will take place in the "near future", but he did not disclose any other details.

That has annoyed fans of other club, particularly Everton and Nottingham Forest.

Everton were handed six and two point deductions for two separate breaches of Premier League Profit and Sustainability Rules, while Forest were deducted four points for their own breach.

City's case has dragged out by comparison, something Everton's former CEO Keith Wyness believes one individual could have handled better.

Wyness told Football Insider‘s Insider Track podcast: "I do believe that statement hinders more than it helps.

"When is the hearing going to be? At some point in the future? Everybody is asking ‘When?’. Let’s get this resolved.

"They were very clear on dates and issues around Nottingham Forest and Everton.

"The chairwoman Alison Brittain needs to be held to account very seriously about this. Richard Masters has been the fall guy in all of this and I fully accept he’s got a lot to answer for.

"But as chairperson, with this Man City case, in the biggest crisis the Premier League’s ever had, she’s been completely anonymous and completely absent.

"She should be the one the public are now holding to account. She should be in front of a select committee as soon as possible to work out what’s going to happen next.

"These are big issues. Rishi Sunak said in his speech the other day the Premier League is the envy of the world. You have to be careful.

"It’s about time the Premier League swept up this mess, stopped it and got on with football."
