Puma, Manchester City's kit supplier, told offthepitch.com they are convinced the "accusations" against the club will be cleared and that they fully trust the club's management.

The company said they have no knowledge about the case.

SAP, another sponsor of City, said they are "aware of the situation and monitoring."

US private equity firm Silver Lake, which last year acquired a ten per cent stake in the club's parent company, said they did not wish to comment on UEFA's verdict.
