MANCHESTER: The club has until 7 December 2023 to respond to the FA on the charges.

English Premier League (EPL) champions Manchester City are in trouble, with the Football Association (FA) throwing the book at them.

The FA has charged Pep Guardiola’s club for failing to control its players who swarmed around match referee Simon Hooper in protest of his controversial decision during a stoppage time of a 3-all draw against Tottenham Hotspur at Etihad Stadium, Manchester, on 3 December 2023.

An FA statement reads that Manchester City have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.1. “It’s alleged that, during the 94th minute of the fixture, the club failed to ensure their players do not behave in a way which is improper,” says the association.

The club, which has until 7 December 2023 to respond to the FA on the charges, may be slapped with a fine. Incidentally, this is not City’s first time charged with a similar offence. In February 2023, following a victory against Arsenal, they were charged with a failure to control their players and were handed a £75 000 fine (R1.8 million).

A silver lining for the club is that individual players will not face charges, meaning that although Norwegian forward Erling Haaland, who was at the centre of the protest and even took his frustrations to social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), will not face a sanction from the FA.
