Manchester City have been banned from Champions League for two seasons by UEFA. After getting banned from the UEFA Champions League for 2 years, they are likely to face a deduction in their Premier League points. Manchester City have been fined £25 million by UEFA for breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. As suggested by many footballing gurus, even the Premier League will be forced to take strict action over Manchester City for breaking FFP regulations.
