 Manchester City have been fined £35,000 (about N17.5 million) by the English Football Association for their players’ behaviour during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool FC on March 19.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the club had admitted to a misconduct charge for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly.

It followed an incident “in or around the 50th minute’’, when referee Michael Oliver awarded Liverpool a penalty kick.

James Milner scored from the spot, with Sergio Aguero equalising on 69 minutes.

Both Gael Clichy, who was penalised for a raised boot on Roberto Firmino, and David Silva were booked after Oliver pointed to the spot.(NAN)
