October 4 – Liverpool may have hoped the £1 million paid to Manchester City in 2013 over allegations that the club’s scouts had been spying on the activity of their Manchester counterparts had been brushed away. While the Premier League has shown no investigative interest in the ‘spygate’ row, the FA has asked to see Man City’s evidence surrounding the hacking.
A report in the Times today says the FA is not calling their information request an investigation however it could lead to misconduct charges of “bringing the game into disrepute”.
Man City used computer fraud investigators to confirm that their database had been hacked and their investigation pointed towards Liverpool and the former City employees. The £1 million settlement was made with neither Liverpool or the accused individuals accepting any liability.
