Should Liverpool be awarded the 2013 – 14 Premier League title if Manchester City have broken FFP laws?
Following the revelations exposed by Der Speigel, allegations have been floated again surrounding the current Premier League Champions. According to the Football leaks disclosures, the club flouted FInancial Fair Play rules.
Do those rule breaking moments invalidate the Premier League titles that city have won? If other clubs have worked hard and suffered to stay within FFA rules, why should Manchester City benefit? The real question is, are the titles that Manchester City won invalidated by this news? And should, as in Italy with Calciopoli, the second place team be awarded the title?
It would mean Liverpool are actually, finally, Premier League winners. But is that a reasonable assessment? Manchester City have strenuously denied the claims but more and more media outlets and even teams are beginning to raise questions. Even Mourinho said “I have thoughts from 2017 but I keep them to myself?”
Should Liverpool be awarded the 2014 Premier League title if Manchester City are found guilty? And should the runners up from each of their title winning years receive the same treatment?
