UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin, has made it clear that the body will not shy away from sanctioning Manchester City amid fears of a ban from the Champions League.
City have been under investigation by a regulatory committee, over a series of leaks into their financial conduct published in German outlet Der Spiegel.
Reports last week suggested that City may face a Champions League ban if found guilty, with UEFA referring the case to Club Financial Control Body adjudicatory chamber.
Ceferin, while speaking with the New York Times, insisted that UEFA will have no qualms about coming down hard on any club.
"Sometimes we forget how dirty this industry is.
"If you do it right, you don't sell yourself.
"If you are not involved in any strange business, if you are not corrupted, then you go straight forward and be fair to anyone," Ceferin said.
