City owners consider Tebas legal action

The owners of Manchester City are weighing up whether to take legal action against La Liga president Javier Tebas following remarks over their finances.

City Football Group said the chief of the Spanish’s top flight earlier comments at Soccerex regarding the Manchester club were ‘ill-informed and in parts pure fiction’.

“Mr Tebas' statements are ill-informed and in parts pure fiction,” said CFG.

“As you would expect, Manchester City Football Club and the City Football Group are seeking appropriate legal counsel and will act accordingly on that advice.”

Tebas had questioned City’s spending in relation to their income and believed that not only UEFA but the European Union should investigate the club, along with Paris Saint-Germain.
