Manchester City have been charged by the Premier League with 'numerous breaches' of financial rules following a four-year investigation.

The English champions have allegedly breached financial rules over a period of nine seasons. They are alleged to have not provided accurate financial information.

According to Martyn Ziegler, a range of sanctions are possible, including a points deduction or even expulsion from the league if the breaches are proved.
