Manchester City are reportedly 'refusing' to co-operate with a UEFA investigation amidst reports the club had broken financial fair play rules.
According to The Guardian, City are unwilling to co-operate on the basis that the allegations formed by Der Spiegel were created from 'hacked or stolen emails', whilst going on to challenge UEFA to offer 'stronger protection against hacking.'
Der Spiegel claim - based on internal emails recovered from Man City - that the club's sponsorship income provided by Abu Dhabi airline Etihad, was in fact 'mostly paid' by City owner
Manchester City's owners are no strangers to FFP investigations, having been found guilty of breaching rules back in 2014. The sanctions provided to the club included a £49m fine and restrictions placed on their Champions League playing squad.
