A FIFA spokesman has explained why Manchester City have escaped a transfer ban despite being found guilty of breaking rules on signing young players, unlike the harsher punishment Chelsea received.

"Generally speaking, FIFA's judicial bodies handle all cases on an individual basis as circumstances differ from case to case," said the FIFA spokesman to the Mirror.



"Please note that in line with article 50 (8) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (2019 version), 'at any time prior to the meeting set up to decide the case by the relevant judicial body, a party may accept responsibility and request the FIFA judicial bodies to impose a specific sanction.



"In its decision on Manchester City , FIFA's Disciplinary Committee took into consideration all specific circumstances of the case as well as the club's cooperation in clarifying the relevant facts.

"Furthermore, according to article 24 (3) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, 'when determining the disciplinary measure, the judicial body shall take into account all relevant factors of the case, including any assistance of and substantial cooperation by the offender in uncovering or establishing a breach of any FIFA rule, the circumstances and the degree of the offender's guilt and any other relevant circumstances.'

"Lastly, as you can see here , Manchester City has accepted its responsibility, which has been considered by FIFA's Disciplinary Committee in its decision."

City have been given a more lenient punishment because they accepted their wrongdoing.
