Manchester City had earlier been hit with a two-year European ban by UEFA for violating UEFA’s financial fair play rules.
Manchester City have taken the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and while that is still up for contention, Manchester City have been fined €3,000 by Uefa for a ‘kit infringement’ during their Champions League win over Real Madrid last month.
According to article 29.02 of Uefa’s equipment regulations, only one element of sponsor advertising is permitted on pre-match wear, but City had two – one small logo on the front and another on the back, featuring two logos of an official gambling partner.
According to the Independent, it isn’t only City who are facing the wrath of UEFA, as Tottenham have been served with a €20,000 fine for kicking off the first leg of their last-16 tie against RB Leipzig late, with Jose Mourinho held responsible for the delay.
Also, Liverpool have been served with a €3,250 fine for setting off fireworks during the second leg of their last-16 tie with Atletico Madrid.
