Arsenal member will chair independent commission into Man City after they're charged with financial rule breaches | The Sun

AN ARSENAL member will chair the independent commission into Manchester City following their alleged breaches of financial rules.

The reigning champions have been charged by the Premier League with more than 100 breaches between 2009 and 2018.

City are now facing a potential points deduction, while other punishments could include transfer bans, spending limits and even having their previous titles stripped.

At this stage City have been charged but not found guilty.

The man set to be investigating their off the field conduct is Arsenal member Murray Rosen KC.

According to BBC, Rosen has been appointed as the chair of the independent commission looking into City's wrongdoings.

Rosen's profile on the 4 New Square chambers says: "He is a strong believer in fairness and in the power and benefits of sport and has a keen appreciation of its social, political and financial aspects.

"He has participated in sport all his life, is a member of the MCC and Arsenal FC, and still regularly plays real tennis and ping pong.

"His knowledge of the sports scene and the issues which arise, both commercial and regulatory, in relation to the governance of sport, and its competitions and events, makes him a sympathetic hands-on tribunal chairman and a successful mediator.
