A City spokeswoman said last night: "Mr Tebas" statements are ill-informed and in parts pure fiction.

Citing Monday's statement by European football's governing body confirming there was no FFP probe into City, a spokeswoman said: "We note the public comments made by Mr Tebas today and earlier this week".

But City were left furious over accusations made with regards to Pablo Maffeo, Aleix Garcia, Douglas Luiz, Marlos Moreno and Olarenwaju Kayode.

Asked if he thought Girona were "cooking the books", the La Liga president added: "They were trying to but they didn't manage to do it".

"Half of the squad left for global duty and they called up reserve players to fill up the group, which is amusing", Bertrand said.

'As you would expect, Manchester City and the City Football Group are seeking appropriate legal counsel and will act accordingly on that advice'.

Speaking at the Soccerex conference in Manchester, Tebas said, "We've caught them peeing in the swimming pool".

"Manchester City with all this oil [money] will take all these players and we need to protect ourselves".

Khettarama is generally not the highest-scoring T20 venue around, even 160 often proving a challenging total here. Also the Indian team will be eyeing on the victory in this game so that they can win the series with 5-0 lead.

Tebas called on UEFA to launch an investigation into "state funded clubs" like Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City that are both owned by sovereign wealth funds from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates respectively.

Two days on from calling on UEFA to investigate Man City's spending, Tebas has once again taken aim at the Citizens and also accused PSG of financial wrongdoing.

"These unworthy remarks do not live up to an institution as respectable and efficient as LaLiga", said the LFP in a statement.

Tebas has said in the past that if Catalonia were to become independent, Barcelona would not be able to play in the Spanish league. "This is not football's market price, It's gas market price".

Girona, are competing in the top tier of the Spanish league for the first time this season.

"Teams that use use financial doping play for an entire year and can win their league or a European trophy, although some have lost as well." .

"We have seen the accounts of these clubs for the past five years, seeing income from gate tickets, TV rights and commercial income".
