Below is the statement from Manchester City:
“Manchester City FC is surprised by the issuing of these alleged breaches of the Premier League Rules, particularly given the extensive engagement and vast amount of detailed materials that the EPL has been provided with.
…The City welcomes the review of this matter by an independent commission, to consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence that exists in support of it’s position. As such we look forward to this matter being put to rest once and for all. “
