Former Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips believes the club should not be stripped of any Premier League titles amid the ongoing investigation into their alleged 115 breaches of FFP rules.

Everton’s 10-point deduction on Friday saw some calling for Premier League chiefs to come down hard on City should they be found guilty of any breaches. The Blues have vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

With City currently sat on seven Premier League titles – five of which have come during the Pep Guardiola era – the Blues have become the dominant force in English football over the past decade. Wright-Phillips does not think any of their titles should be taken away from them as he doesn’t believe anyone who finished second to City would want to be handed the title.

Speaking to NewBettingOffers, he said: “I don’t think it would be fair for Manchester City to be stripped of any of their previous honours should they be found guilty of any of the charges against them.

“It wouldn’t be fair, and I don’t think clubs would want to take those trophies off of City. They wouldn’t feel like they rightfully deserved them.

“Regardless of what was happening off the pitch when these allegations first surfaced, the team still had to be managed and the players still had to perform in the way they did to win those titles. Whatever happens off the field shouldn’t take away from everything that the managers, players and fans did for the club. They are the reason why the club has won what they have.

“No matter what happens to City I think the fans will all stick together. They have been in darker places, when they were down in Division Two the fans were still there, and I don’t think that will change.

“They just have to keep getting on with things on the pitch at the moment and then cross that bridge when they come to it. Until then, they are not guilty. Nothing has happened so far and clearly if they are fighting it then they feel as though they haven’t done anything wrong.”
