Manchester City are facing a possible Premier League points deduction and could even be forced to play in League Two in the wake of their Champions League ban, experts have warned.

The club have today been banned by UEFA from European club competitions for two seasons and handed a €30m (£25m) fine for "serious breaches" of football's European governing body's Financial Fair Play rules.

UEFA's Adjudicatory Chamber found the club had overstated its sponsorship revenue in accounts submitted between 2012 and 2016.

As well as handing a major boost to the teams battling for fifth place such as Spurs, Chelsea and Sheffield United, the ruling could also have a knock-on effect on the side's Premier League status.

This is because any club has to supply true information to get a Premier League license, information which would have had to be the same as that supplied to UEFA.

High-level sources have told The Independent that this will force the Premier League to act because of their own licensing which follows on from UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

The paper reports that Premier League committees had already discussed possible punishments for City if they were handed a ban by UEFA, with a points deduction now seen as "highly likely".

Although City have said they will fight to have the ban overturned, sources claim this wouldn't be the case with any Premier League punishment because of the specific situation.

The Football League recently changed its rules so that any club found in such a situation would be bumped down to League Two.

This would mean City swapping their battles for the top of the table for League Two crunch ties against the likes of Grimsby Town, Forest Green and Port Vale.

Instead of the Manchester derby seeing City take on United in the cauldron of Old Trafford, their nearest league rivals would likely be Salford City, owned by former United legends Phil and Gary Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham.

And while they currently play at some of the biggest and most famous stadiums in Europe, relegation could see them travel to Macclesfield Town's Moss Rose, where average attendances this season have been just 2,024.

However, forced relegation is seen as a very unlikely scenario in this case.

This hasn't stopped rival fans trolling their City counterparts in the wake of the ruling.

One fan joked: "Man City vs Salford City 2022."

In its statement, the club said: "Manchester City is disappointed but not surprised by today's announcement by the UEFA Adjudicatory Chamber.

"The Club has always anticipated the ultimate need to seek out an independent body and process to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence in support of its position."

Even if City go down, which is not certain yet, it shouldn't be the end of the world. Juventus suffered similar crisis and lost everything including their biggest stars apart from Del Piero and I think Nedved, but they're now a bigger and stronger club than they were before their ban, even built a brand new stadium. Man City may need to learn from Juventus how to bounce back.

League 2 ke? Not even Championship? That means it could take them at least 3 years to return to the Premiership. Man City should go and beg whoever they offended.

Mancity are having a bad season already na.

Now they will say Liverpool beat Mancity to the tittle cos they weren't really in the game.

Don't want them to take anything away from Liverpool's awesome performance.

Anyways, If you have got an existing logo, convert it to any of these 3D versions for just 1k.
Yeah.

According to some analysis Man City have a strong appeal case against the UEFA ban so people should chill a bit first. But even if everything fails and they go down, it shouldn't be the end of the world. Juventus suffered similar crisis and lost everything including their biggest stars apart from Del Piero and I think Pavel Nedved, but they're now a bigger and stronger club than they were before their ban, even built a brand new stadium. Man City may need to learn from Juventus how to bounce back.

Man City is guilty bro and deserve every punishment they get. The only appeal they have is the source of the evidence against them which is very fishy.

Problem here is that since UEFA made FFP rule, alot of clubs having been taking advantage of UEFA up to this point. They needed to make a statement and sadly City were use as the scapegoat. The more realistic scenario is City getting a year ban and then increased fine but there's no saving them.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is worried about the future of several of his players after the club received a two-year ban from playing in the Champions League, reports ESPN.

The Spaniard reportedly knew about the ban on Friday morning, and is now anxious that some of his current squad may want to leave the league champions upon hearing the news.
