Riga has officially complained to Uefa about Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain that the British and French champions are in a “continuous breach” of the Financial Fair Play Regulations.
Impressive intervention on the part of Spain’s top flight and its President Javier Tebas continues the growing civil war within European football that exists beyond the boundaries created by the European Super League.
Liga said that the money earned by two “state clubs” owned by organizations related to the Abu Dhabi and Qatar Gulf countries is “the money that football itself does not generate and artificially inflates the market.” He said he believed.
“Riga understands that irregular funding for these clubs is done through direct funding or through financially meaningless sponsorships and other contracts that do not respond to market conditions. “Masu,” the statement said.
Liga also revealed that it has hired a legal representative in Switzerland, the home of Uefa, to file a proceeding against PSG President Nasser Alkeraifi on suspicion of conflict of interest.
The line exploded as PSG defeated Real Madrid this summer to sign Kylian Mbappe and renew their contract with France on a three-year contract. Riga immediately complained to Uefa about the deal, arguing that it was not possible under FFP rules. This is what PSG denies.
Neither Citi nor PSG comment on the latest claims, but both clubs are known to deny cheating and have derogatory views on LaLiga’s own funding arrangements. Barcelona recently reported a € 500 million hole in its finances after President Joan Laporta demanded stricter rules on national ownership of football clubs on Tuesday, but in January it was € 55 million for Ferran Torres of Spain. Completed the transaction.
Individual complaints against Kelaifi will further increase tensions within Uefa, where he and Tebas are members of the Executive Committee. “We are considering different representative options because of the potential conflict of interests of Nasser Al-Kelaifi resulting from his various roles at PSG, Weber and the Union of European Football Associations,” Riga said. [ECA] And BeIN Sports. “
Khelaifi became chairman of the ECA after the collapse of the European Super League project last year. Barcelona, Madrid and City were members of the Breakaway League, but PSG chose not to participate in the project. This puts the French team on the same side as their vocal opponent, LaLiga. BeIn Sports holds the rights to many European football competitions, including League One in the French domestic market. PSG argues that Kelaifi does not make enforcement decisions on behalf of the broadcaster, and potential conflicts of interest are consistently reviewed by his lawyers.
PSG and City were previously investigated by Uefa, who was sued in the appeal, for FFP. The PSG was cleared in 2019 and subsequent attempts to resume the investigation were stopped by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas). In July 2020, Cas overturned the two-year Champions League ban imposed on City by Uefa.
