Simon Jordan clashes with Man City fan who says the club’s rule breach charges prove an agenda against the cub
| Last updated
Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan came head-to-head with a passionate Man City fan regarding their allegations of financial wrongdoing from the Premier League.
Speaking on talkSPORT on Tuesday evening, Manchester City fan Joe declared that the Premier League had failed to give his club 'a fair shake of the stick' and slammed the FFP rules that have hindered his club.
After coming head-to-head with regards to the alleged illegal payments made to former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, City fan Joe went on to describe the Premier League as a cartel:
"Everything is a cartel. The Premier League would love it if they had their four teams competing for the Premier League every year and everyone else was just left to suck it."
Jordan slammed the comments as "ridiculous" before making the following statement:
"The bottom line is you don't like the rules. You think the rules are weighted against you, you talk about Chelsea firing managers and paying off £160M which has got nothing to do with the price of cheese.
"You are being alleged that you have misrepresented sponsorships, misrepresented contracts that players and managers have been on and you know what, it's really easy to prove if you haven't done it."
The two continue to go back and forth with regards to the alleged financial wrongdoing, with Jordan adamant that City haven't been hard done by, instead correctly punished for their illegalities on a footballing front.

Manchester City are set to defend their name against the Premier League in front of an independent panel that will be headed by Arsenal member Murray Rosen KC.
The Citizens will not be dealing with the issue on the cheap, as they have once again turned to the man responsible for helping the club past UEFA in 2020, for costs that could be as high as the weekly wage of Kevin De Bruyne.
