In the latest allegations to plunge City into turmoil, it is alleged a risk analysis regarding a possible deal with Arabtec was carried out by executives but that, despite the report concluding a partnership with the company would have "significant potential to damage the perception and standing of the club and its owners", the club struck an agreement regardless, signing a regional contract that would be publicised only in Arab states, Russian Federation and Turkey, where there was considered to be less risk of condemnation. Are you still going to cling to this spurious notion that your club has been treated viciously by Uefa?
Der Spiegel, crediting Football Leaks, has also alleged the third-party company to which they sold player image rights was also funded by the Sheikh.
La Liga, the Spanish top flight, has said that, if UEFA does not act, it will "launch a complaint with European Union competition authorities".
City have subsequently been accused in more leaked documents of an array of attempts to inflate and backdate sponsorship deals to "deceive" UEFA.
In its latest claims, Der Spiegel says Manchester City used "creative solutions" to avoid costs, calling their endeavour "Project Longbow".
"I am inside now for the past three years and I would say of course like many, many clubs around the world there is a lot of money, but they are an incredible club".
The new documents reveal City chief executive Ferran Soriano said, in reference to FFP, the club "need to fight this and do it in a way that is not visible, or we will be pointed out as the global enemies of football".
"But I am part of the club, I am supportive of absolutely the club and we want to do what we have to do in terms of the rules".
"I'm a manager. I'm completely out of how we handle this situation".
"We certainly hope Uefa will take the right decisions and enforce Financial Fair Play rules, but we don't have full confidence that they will". UEFA's rules are created to encourage clubs to live within their means and prevent fatcat owners, many of them with unlimited funds, from buying their way to success to the detriment of less affluent rivals.
The 47-year-old also claimed that it would be unfair to put Man City's success down to financial investment alone, adding: "If people say it's just about money we accept it, but that point of view is completely wrong. But we focus on what we have to do on the pitch". City, who lead Group F, can take a big stride towards qualification for the last 16 with victory over the Ukrainian champions.
City CEO Ferran Soriano complained in one memo that ECA members were pushing for the UEFA rules - which many thought could curb the rise of Man City and Qatari-owned Paris Saint-Germain.
"After dropping points against Lyon, every game is a final".
