Manchester City have accepted an FA charge of breaching anti-doping rules.

The charge relates to a “whereabouts” ruling which states that each club must make the authorities aware of training sessions and the location of player whereabouts at all times in case of possible drug tests.

What does this charge actually mean?

Well, there is a widespread belief that a fine is coming City’s way and a slap on the wrist for an administrative error.

City were charged with failing to let anti-doping officers know where their players were on Jan. 12 and after requesting more time to respond to the initial charge they have now accepted it.

Now we wait to find out exactly what their punishment is, but it doesn’t seem like any points deduction is coming the way of Pep Guardiola‘s men.
