Uefa: revaluation of financial fair play cases possible

DUefa has announced a reassessment of possible breaches of finacial fair play, if new findings emerge in individual cases. "If new information becomes available that could be relevant to this assessment, Uefa will use it to challenge the numbers and ask the association concerned for clarification, clarification or refutation," a European Commission statement said Football Union. "If new information indicates that previously completed cases have been abused, these cases may be reopened on a case-by-case basis."

The Continental Confederation did not comment specifically on the controversial cases of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City. According to information from England, the Uefa reaction, however, results in inquiries into the cases of the two clubs, which are supported by billions from the Gulf region. Uefa explicitly stated that the FFP approach "applies universally to all clubs applying for a Uefa license and participating in European club competitions".

Recently, the news magazine "Der Spiegel", citing documents from the platform Football Leaks reported allegedly unfair mediation by the then Uefa Secretary General and today's Fifa boss Gianni Infantino in the settlement negotiations with both clubs in 2014. In the end, mild judgments by Uefa's Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) against the clubs from Qatar and Abu Dhabi were received. Infantino dismissed the allegations and described the communication with the club representatives as compliant with the rules.

With the Financial Fair Play, Uefa wants to ensure more equal opportunities in club football. Clubs are not allowed to spend more money than they receive and donations from sponsors have to be market-common. This is to prevent clubs from spending huge sums of money on the transfer market.
