"This..." - Liverpool legend Carragher gives sarcastic response to Man City's alleged financial rule breaches

Jamie Carragher has made a sarcastic dig at Manchester City after they were charged for alleged financial regulation breaches by the Premier League.

The reigning champions have been charged with over 100 alleged breaches over a period of nine years for failing to co-operate with rules surrounding profitability and sustainability. An independent commission will now investigate the review.

If the club is found guilty of any breaches, sanctions could include a points deduction, compensation, an order to pay costs, or even expulsion from the Premier League, according to Sky Sports.



Former Liverpool defender Carragher was quick to respond to the news, offering his twopence on the situation.

The ex England international retweeted the Premier League's official statement, alongside a sarcastic caption.

He wrote: "This can’t be right, Man City bring in more commercial revenue than Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Man Utd & Liverpool."

Manchester City top Money League rankings


Manchester City occupied top spot on the Deloitte Football Money League for the second year in a row, reaffirming their status as the richest football club in the world.

They led the way with a revenue of £619.1 million, pipping Champions League winners Real Madrid along with Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United.

More than half of that figure was derived from sponsorship and other commercial partnerships, which Carragher was referring to.

Manchester City reacted to the charges on Monday afternoon, releasing an official club statement stating that they are "surprised by the issuing of these alleged breaches of Premier League Rules."


The statement added: "The club welcomes the review of this matter by an independent Commission, to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence that exists in support of its position."

Guardiola expected to leave

Should Manchester City be found guilty, Pep Guardiola is expected to walk.

Guardiola previously voiced his concerns with the City hierarchy after the club were investigated for breaching UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.


The Spaniard revealed that he told the board he would walk from the club if they were to lie to him again.

“Why did I defend the club and the people? It’s because I work with them,” he said in 2022.

“When they are accused of something I ask them, ‘Tell me about that’. They explain and I believe them. I said to them, ‘If you lie to me, the day after I am not here.’ I will be out and I will not be your friend anymore.

“I put my faith in you because I believe you 100 per cent from day one and I defend the club because of that."
