Zapping Goal! soccer club Rea Madrid: top 10 goalscorers in history
“LaLiga this week lodged a complaint with UEFA against PSG, who will join another against Manchester City in April, for understanding that these clubs are continually in breach of current Financial Fair Play rules.
LaLiga considers that these practices alter the ecosystem and the sustainability of football, harm all European clubs and leagues, and only serve to artificially inflate the market, with money not generated by football itself.
LaLiga understands that the irregular financing of these clubs takes place, either through direct injections of money or through sponsorship and other contracts that do not correspond to market conditions or do not make economic sense.
The complaints against Manchester City before UEFA were filed in April and last week the one corresponding to PSG was presented, although it is not excluded that in the coming days extensions of some of these complaints will be made with bringing in new data.
In addition, LaLiga has contracted law firms in France and Switzerland, including the French law firm of lawyer Juan Branco, with the aim of initiating administrative and legal proceedings as soon as possible before the competent French authorities and before the European Union.
In Switzerland, La Liga are looking at different representation options due to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi’s possible conflicts of interest from his various roles at PSG, UEFA, ECA and BeIN Sports.
This is not the first time that La Liga has denounced these anti-competitive practices before UEFA. The Spanish organization has always led the defense of economic control. In 2017 and 2018, he filed briefs with UEFA against PSG and Manchester City for breaching financial fair play, which resulted in UEFA sanctions against the two “state clubs”, although that they were later canceled due to strange CAS decisions.
The complaints of LaLiga, as well as the statements that the association of Spanish clubs have made lately in this regard, are made on the basis of data and after a detailed follow-up and analysis of the audited accounts of the clubs”, can we read on the La Liga press release.
