Everton Hit with Record Penalty Points for Financial Fair Play Breach

The Premier League has imposed ten penalty points on Everton for breaching Financial Fair Play rules. Amadou Onana’s club has already announced that it will appeal this decision.

Everton is accused of having lost 124.5 million pounds over the period in question, while the loss cap was set at 105 million pounds.

This point deduction is the largest ever imposed in the English championship. Everton is the third club in history sanctioned in this way, after Blackburn in 1996-1997 (3 points) and Portsmouth in 2010 (9 points).

Everton say they are “shocked” and “disappointed” by the Premier League Commission’s decision. “The club considers that the Commission has imposed a totally disproportionate and unfair sporting sanction,” we read in a club press release. “The club has already indicated its intention to appeal the decision to the Premier League.” The Toffees also indicate that they will follow “with great interest the decisions taken in any other matter concerning the profit and sustainability rules of the Premier League”, referring in particular to the 115 accusations of infringement made against Manchester City.

While the club narrowly avoided relegation last season, today it finds itself penultimate in the championship with only 4 points on the clock. Burnley brings up the rear with as many points, but a more disadvantageous goal difference.
