Manchester City 'concerned' by FFP investigation leak, claims allegations 'entirely false'


City yesterday insisted they are "fully co-operating in good faith" with Uefa's ongoing investigation into alleged breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations by the club.

And among those to make the final ruling is Parry.

City have denied any financial irregularity and said they welcomed the UEFA investigation "as an opportunity to bring to an end the speculation resulting from the illegal hacking and out of context publication of City emails".

City simply have to win Europe's biggest competition to be taken seriously as a big club, but the reality is they have not even come close to reaching a Champions League final despite spending £1billion to build their dream team over the last decade.

Having also won the League Cup earlier in the campaign, Guardiola's side could complete a first ever domestic treble in English football when they face Watford in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.

While Liverpool have a fantastic first XI but the harsh reality is that they do not have a very good bench on which their manager can blindly rely upon.

Since the Abu Dhabi United Investment Group acquired Manchester City in 2008, the club's new leadership under chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has transformed the club from mid-table mediocracy to a global footballing powerhouse, winning four Premier League titles in the past eight years.

Despite struggling on the final day of the season, Robertson is adamant that he will be ready for the final, especially with gaffer Jurgen Klopp giving the squad some well earned resting time ahead of the final in Madrid. We know who couldn't hack it.

Liverpool finished as runners-up to champions Manchester City by just a single point, despite losing just one game all season and earning a record haul of 97 points.

"What happens with them in terms of off the field, in terms of rule breaking, in terms of investigations from Premier League, FA, UEFA and Federation Internationale de Football Association I think will determine where the club goes".

Manchester City has released two statements in response to the announcement of the Uefa investigation.
