Man City and their Premier League peers may face repercussions from Uefa following the shock decision of President Alexander Ceferin’s to step down, according to finance expert Kieran Maguire. Mark Bullingham, CEO of the FA, voted against allowing Uefa presidents to stay in power for more than three terms. As a result of this decision, Ceferin announced his resignation, citing exhaustion. Maguire suggests that Bullingham’s vote could lead to backlash against the Premier League, as Ceferin is known to hold grudges.

Just days before this decision, Ceferin supported Uefa’s ban of Man City from European competitions due to financial regulation breaches. Although City’s ban was later overturned, this turn of events reflects a possible strained relationship between City, the Premier League, and Ceferin. The timing of this decision draws attention to the tension surrounding City’s ban.

Maguire believes that the upcoming Uefa president will have a lot of pressing issues to address, such as the Super League, and will likely spend little time dealing with fan welfare. He anticipates that City and the Premier League will face repercussions in the future due to the existing tension with Uefa.
