Man City have been slapped with a 20-point deduction for breaking rules relating to cringe-worthy content.
The Premier League have today confirmed the punishment after reviewing a video released by Etisalat, one of City’s commercial partners.
The telecommunications company recklessly published the following video without thinking of the damage it would cause to the unsuspecting public.
Viewer discretion is advised…
There have been multiple reports of fans suffering near fatal embarrassment after viewing the video.
One former Maine Road season-ticket holder is said to have cringed himself into a coma with doctors playing him commentary of Shaun Goater goals in an attempt to regain his consciousness.
Unofficial Premier League spokesman, Lee Satchell, said: “City didn’t leave us with much choice unfortunately.
“They celebrated winning the league by remixing a nursery rhyme, for f**k’s sake.
“I had to pause it after 25 seconds because I thought I was going to be sick. You know when you burp and a bit comes up? That.
“When that old geezer yelled ‘HOORAY!’ I just closed my laptop and tossed it out the window.
“They’ve been the best team all season, there’s no doubt about that.
“But the rules are pretty clear when it comes to offensive content of this nature. They can have no complaints.”
The deduction means City are now fourth with 67 points, level with Spurs.
