The Manchester City Football Club Latest Football News
- Sat, 16 Nov 2019 11:10:35 +0000: Vincent Kompany: ‘You never learn as much as when you get your arse kicked’ - Manchester City | The Guardian
The former Manchester City captain – ‘100% Congolese, 100% Belgian, 100% Manc’ – on the ‘beautiful adversity’ of his new challenge at Anderlecht, racism and Brexit
“Every chapter in my life has started with a setback and a struggle,” Vincent Kompany says, “but there has been success or glory at the end. That doesn’t come by doubting yourself. It doesn’t come by giving up in difficult circumstances. Quite the opposite. It’s learning and staying calm in adversity. There is such a beautiful side to adversity.”
Kompany’s eloquence and intelligence light up a drab Monday morning in Manchester as we begin an interview that is unlike any other I’ve done with a footballer. The former Belgium and Manchester City captain, who now works as a player-manager at his boyhood club, Anderlecht, addresses systemic racism and the bleak rise of populism. He talks about Brexit, the lessons of vulnerability in his last season at City and the spatial awareness of Pep Guardiola.

- Fri, 15 Nov 2019 12:24:54 +0000: Manchester City’s Cas appeal over FFP dismissed as ‘inadmissible’ - Manchester City | The Guardian
• City had appealed against Uefa FFP investigation
• Cas ruling means Uefa’s case against City will continue
The case against Manchester City for alleged breaches of Uefa’s financial fair play regulations will proceed to a full hearing after the court of arbitration for sport rejected City’s appeal against the charge being made.
City had appealed to Cas in May against the decision of Uefa’s club financial control body investigatory chamber to refer the alleged breaches to the CFCB’s adjudicatory chamber for a decision. The investigatory chamber is understood to have recommended that if the serious charges are proven, that City misled Uefa in 2013-14 about the source of sponsorship money paid to the club, City should be banned from the Champions League for a season.

- Wed, 13 Nov 2019 14:14:56 +0000: Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva banned for one match over Mendy tweet - Manchester City | The Guardian
• Silva also fined £50,000 and sent on education course
• Portugal midfielder set to miss Chelsea match on 23 November
Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva has been suspended for one game, fined £50,000 and must undergo education after a tweet sent to Benjamin Mendy was deemed to have constituted an “aggravated breach” of the Football Association’s rules on social media behaviour because it appeared to reference the French left-back’s race.
City will not appeal against the independent FA commission’s decision because of the possibility that Silva’s punishment could be extended, though the club believe the tariff is too high considering he deleted the tweet almost instantly and apologised. Silva escaped the maximum penalty of a six-match ban and will miss the champions’ hosting of Chelsea on 23 November – their next fixture. The Portuguese was given a one-match ban due to the mitigating circumstances articulated in the commission’s ruling.

- Mon, 11 Nov 2019 20:00:18 +0000: Genesis, Revelation … Exodus: has Guardiola reached City endgame? | Barney Ronay - Manchester City | The Guardian
Guardiola is generally in one of three phases of engagement – it is tempting to conclude we are in this third stage now, that the Pep exodus has begun
This is the end, beautiful friend. Or rather, it may just be a vision of it. Watching Pep Guardiola capering on the Anfield touchline on Sunday – skinny legs splayed, arms flailing, black quilted jacket bouncing about like an angry rubber ball – was at least confirmation of one thing. Manchester City’s manager remains an extraordinarily agile and sprightly 48-year-old footballing obsessive.
Beyond that it was hard to interpret this reaction to a third Premier League defeat as a sign of good health, stability and plans for the future falling neatly into place. Instead Guardiola seemed oddly isolated, out there operating without restraint, still in the field, a manager who may just have entered the next phase in a familiar career parabola. So much so it is tempting to ask another question. Will he actually be back at Anfield for another league game?

Short of dashing out of his technical area to procure a tree branch with which to give Mike Dean a damned good thrashing, it’s difficult to imagine quite how Pep Guardiola could have gone more Basil Fawlty on the fourth official during Manchester City’s defeat at the hands of Liverpool yesterday.
