Man City have taken flak for their transfer market activities but have come out with flying assessments whenever questioned.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned UEFA’s FFP sanctions over the Citizens. They will continue their Champions League adventures, whilst also looking to regain their lost Premier League title.

Ever since Manchester City were taken over by the City Football Group, they have been the bane of rivals in England and Europe. Their financial advantages and pick of managerial options have caused a lot of rifts. 

Former Manchester City forward, Shaun Goater, wants them to continue in their own vein and not allow outside noise to distract them from their progress. 

Goater pointed towards the investments made by Leeds and Manchester over the years and called it normal in the environment.

“City won this FFP court case a few weeks back and no-one can now say that what they have done in the last few years is wrong in any way,” Goater told TeamTalk

“My take is that City has an investor who wants to improve his business and he is looking to do that by investing in the academy and buying players. Other clubs have always done this, whether it is Manchester United, Leeds or whoever it might have been in the past.”

“Now, City has investors that have a lot of money and some of their rivals who have spent a lot of money themselves in the recent past don’t seem to like it.”

“Manchester United have spent a lot of money on players in recent years and have not got to where they want to be, but the rest seem to be scared about Man City because they can spend big and get good players, but they should not apologize for that.”

Manchester City are favorites for the Champions League title after overcoming Real Madrid in the Round of 16 tie.
