Arsene Wenger predicts possible punishment for Man City amid financial charges

Arsene Wenger says he is ‘surprised’ by Manchester City’s charge in the Premier League and made a prediction about a possible punishment.

The Blues have been accused by the Premier League of “numerous breaches” of financial rules after a four-year investigation.

But Wenger is not convinced they will lose their titles as he admits he was “surprised” by the allegations.

The 73-year-old also mentioned Arsenal’s ‘struggle’ with Man City during his time in charge of the north London club, who lost the likes of Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy to their domestic rivals.

“I was on this case where I had to fight with no money against teams that had unlimited resources,” he said in beIN SPORTS.

“I know well what it’s like to be in that position and I felt that you have at every club to work with your resources and do the best you can.”

Wenger added: “Then it is for the Premier League to decide.

“FFP is not perfect, I fully agree with that and do people with unlimited resources who come into the game today accept that they cannot invest money?

“I can’t believe this. What’s the interest in buying a football club.”

Asked if Manchester City are in danger of losing their league titles, the Frenchman replied: “Very small. I think so.

“I think at the moment I know Khaldoon (Al Mubarak) very well and I think he is an intelligent and honest man, so I was quite surprised by the accusations they face, so let’s see the result.

“If they are found guilty, they will face penalties I don’t know what they will be.”
