UEFA sends warning to Manchester City over recent Champions League problems

UEFA has issued two warnings to Pep Guardiola and Manchester City following incidents in a recent Champions League match.

This comes just a week after Manchester City qualified for the next round of the competition.

Despite dropping points in midweek, other results ensured that Pep Guardiola and his team will compete in the knock-out stages, which begin in 2023.

However, prior to their success, UEFA issues a stern warning to the Premier League champions following events in the same competition last month.

Manchester City has received a warning from UEFA for a late kick-off, according to the governing body.

That was in reference to the 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund last month at the Etihad Stadium in the Champions League.

Along with the club, UEFA issued a personal warning to first-team coach Pep Guardiola regarding the late kick-off.

In other Manchester City-related news, UEFA has issued financial penalties and strict orders to Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund for issues that occurred earlier in the season.

According to official statements this week, the La Liga club has been ordered to pay City for damage to their team bus caused by Sevilla fans prior to the Champions League game on September 6.

Furthermore, UEFA has fined the Spanish club €5,000 for the incident.

Borussia Dortmund was fined the same amount for damage to the Etihad Stadium caused by their fans on September 14th.

The Bundesliga club, like Sevilla, has been ordered to contact Manchester City for settlement costs.

Manchester City will return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola and his players will be looking to rebound from a frustrating evening in Copenhagen on Tuesday night, when the Blues were held to a single point by the Danish hosts.

Nonetheless, Dortmund’s draw with Sevilla later in the evening means City will advance with two games remaining, but will compete with Dortmund for first place in Group G.

Manchester City travels to Anfield this weekend in an attempt to maintain their unbeaten start to the season and keep pace with league leaders Arsenal.
