GENEVA — UEFA club finance investigators have sent their Manchester City file to independent judges for a verdict which could be a one-year ban from the Champions League. UEFA confirmed the expected referral to its judging panel on Thursday, though did not publish the recommended punishment or a timetable for the verdict. “The accusation of financial irregularities remains entirely false and the … referral ignores a comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence provided by Manchester City,” the club said. City has not disputed that the published information is authentic, while also refusing to address the detail in public statements. City can appeal against any punishment imposed by UEFA’s club finance panel at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
