Shaun Wright Phillips is not happy about the possibility of his former Manchester City club losing its titles due to Financial Fair Play violations.
Everton was docked 10 FFP points due to the rules last week. Reports have indicated that they could lose their Premier League titles as they are facing their own investigation.
Wright-Phillips (42), insists that Etihad should retain their silverware.
He told NewBettingOffers.co.uk: “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 would be unfair and I do not think that clubs will want to remove those trophies from City. The clubs would not feel that they deserved the trophies.
The team had to manage the team and players had to perform as they had done to win these titles, regardless of the allegations that first appeared.
The work of the players, managers and supporters for the club should not be diminished by anything that happens on the field. “They are the reasons why the club won the things they’ve achieved.”
Everton will appeal the Premier League after they have fallen into the relegation area due to their point deduction.
Wright-Phillips believes the Toffees are entitled to feel cheated.
The punishment Everton received is unfair.
The players and fans are not to blame for what happened on the field.
I think that there should be another way of handling it, because there’s a possibility that the team will now get relegated. The players do not deserve this.
The fans have been spending their money on Premier League Football for years, but could also be penalized for the behind-the-scenes activities.
