Media giants ‘remind’ presenters and pundits of ‘language used’ regarding Manchester City’s 115 charges



| Last Updated:


Presenters and pundits for two of the UK’s biggest broadcasting channels have been reminded about the ‘language being used’ surrounding Manchester City’s ongoing case.

The Premier League charged Manchester City with more than 100 breaches of its financial rules following a four-year investigation back in February 2023, referring the club to an independent commission over alleged rule breaches between 2009 and 2018.

The English top-flight also accused City of not co-operating since the investigation started in December 2018, while those from the Etihad Stadium responded by stating that they were “surprised” by the charges and continue to be supported by a “body of irrefutable evidence”.

Premier League CEO Richard Masters commented during a recent media address on the situation by stating, “We can’t comment on the case (with Manchester City), the date is set. The case will resolve itself at some point in the near future.”

Meanwhile, a number of presenters and pundits of various media organisations, as well as journalists, continue to offer their take on the situation through a number of sources, with Manchester City attentive to those public opinions.

According to the information of Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’ on X, the owners of TalkSport and Sky have ‘reminded’ their presenters and pundits of the ‘language being used’ when discussing Manchester City’s ongoing Premier League case.

Elsewhere, there have been rumours on social media suggesting that The United Stand and That’s Football presenter Brent Di Cesare, or ‘Mark Goldbridge’, had been issued with a ‘cease and desist’ notice from the Premier League champions over his public comments.

“I’ll be talking on my podcast about the cease and desist letter and I’ll have the letter for you on the podcast on Tuesday. So, for anybody that’s interested in that, Tuesday’s podcast,” Di Cesare claimed.

“Normally it would be tomorrow (Monday) but it’s a bank holiday, so I’ll have the letter. I’m not scared, and at the end of the day, if it’s the end of That’s Football, it’s the end of That’s Football. I will read the letter out, and I will tell you what it’s all about.”

However, as confirmed to City Xtra by a club source on Monday afternoon, it is understood that there has been no legal contact between the Premier League champions and presenter Mark Goldbridge.
