Man City plays attractive football that enhances the prestige and visibility of the EPL, and they are one of the reasons that the EPL is the most viewed football competition with the most revenue. The difficulty for the EPL, at least in the short-term, is that anything that affects Man City will also impact the competition and the prestige and visibility of the competition. Personally, if they are guilty, I'd treat them like Rangers, but this is why I don't work in the corporate sector; I'm always accused of being an idealist and 'unrealistic'😂 The EPL is, or should be, fully aware of what you say, which IMO is a bit of an exaggeration. City are not the most popular club in the EPL. That honour goes to Liverpool in the UK and to Manchester United by a mile globally. Depending on what you measure it sits about fourth in the global rankings - City, Arsenal and Liverpool all rate about the same globally, lower than Chelsea at No. 2 and United at no. 1. In the end the EPL either has to put up or shut up. As I understand it, it has charged Manchester City with breaching EPL regulations, so it has to be prepared for any backlash on itself if City is found guilty and the EPL imposes appropriate punishment.
