Is Man City scared of the ‘EPL exit crisis’?… Appointed a lawyer for ‘Holland-level annual salary’
Manchester City are trying to overcome a crisis caused by overspending with money.
On the 6th (hereafter Korean time), the English Premier League (EPL) Secretariat announced on its official website, “According to EPL Rule W.82.1, the Premier League has referred Man City’s alleged violation of the rules to the Committee in accordance with Rule W.3.4.” was officially announced.
Manchester City are currently facing four charges. First, violation of EPL financial regulations for 9 consecutive seasons. Second, management’s remuneration is not disclosed. Third, the 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2017-18 seasons of the European Football Federation (UEFA)’s financial fair play (FFP) non-compliance. Lastly, the 2018-19 season and the 2022-23 season EPL investigation was not cooperated.
Since the investigation 메이저사이트is still in progress, the result of the disciplinary action has not been announced, but reports are coming out that in severe cases, the situation of EPL expulsion may come out.
Accordingly, Manchester City decided to spend money once again. Manchester City hired Britain’s best lawyer to prove their innocence. The lawyer Manchester City hired is Rod Panic, who works for a lawyer firm called Blackstone Chambers. The reason Manchester City hired Panic was because he had saved the club in the past. Manchester City were penalized by the European Football Federation (UEFA) in the name of violating Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules in 2020.
At the time, UEFA imposed a two-year ban on Manchester City from European competition and a fine of 30 million euros (approximately 40.5 billion won). However, Man City formed a defense team centered on Panic and appealed to the International Court of Arbitration for Sport. The result was a victory for Man City. The International Court of Arbitration for Sports ruled that the disciplinary action of being banned from participating in European competitions was unfair. The fine was also lowered to 10 million euros (approximately 13.5 billion won).
In addition to this incident, Panic also led to Manchester City’s victory in 2001 when former Manchester City manager Joe Royle filed a lawsuit related to a hard penalty.
Panic has good memories for Man City twice, so there is plenty of reason to continue the kite this time. However, Panic is by no means an easy lawyer to bring. According to a report by the British ‘Telegraph’ on the 7th, Panic is a lawyer who can earn up to 80,000 pounds (approximately 1216.8 billion won) a day. This is known to be similar to the contract of Elling Holland, the highest-paid player in the club.
