The English second division has no obligation to accept Manchester City.
The British ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 7th (hereinafter Korean time), “Manchester City may be demoted due to violation of the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rule. However, even if they are relegated, the EFL (English Football League) has no obligation to accept Manchester City.” notified
On the 6th, the Premier League announced in an official statement that Manchester City had violated the FFP rule in more than 100 cases over the past nine seasons and were charged with the Premier League.
Reportedly, Man City is at risk of receiving a wide range of penalties, from a point cut to expulsion from the league.
One of the disciplinary methods of Man City is ‘relegation’. From England’s first tier Premier League to the second tier EFL Championship.
But even this won’t be easy. The Daily Mail said, “EFL manages a total of three competitions, including the second division, the Championship, the third division, ‘League One’, and the fourth division, ‘League Two’, and only 72 teams can belong to the EFL.”
Therefore, even if Man City is relegated from the Premier League and heads to the second division, if the EFL refuses to do so, they cannot even participate in the second division. 스포츠토토
Meanwhile, there is another problem for Manchester City, which is the departure of manager Pep Guardiola. On the 6th, the British ‘Mirror’ re-examined Guardiola’s past remarks, saying, “Manchester City coach Guardiola hinted at leaving.”
