The Spanish league said it would take “further legal action to the European Union, France and Switzerland” justice systems as it understands that “these clubs are continually breaching the current regulations” of financial fair play.
LaLiga said it lodged the complaint against Manchester City to UEFA in April before filing the one against PSG last week.
LaLiga president Javier Tebas said last month the organisation would take legal action against the French club after Kylian Mbappe snubbed a widely-tipped move to Real Madrid at the 11th hour and renewed his contract with PSG until 2025.
In an official statement, relayed by Spanish newspaper Marca, La Liga state:
“La Liga this week filed a complaint with UEFA against PSG, which will join another against Manchester City in April, for understanding that these clubs are continuously breaching the current financial fair play regulations.”
“La Liga 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 in football itself.”
“La Liga understands that the irregular financing of these clubs is carried out, either through direct injections of money or through sponsorship and other contracts that do not correspond to market conditions or make economic sense.”
“The complaints against Manchester City before UEFA were made in April and this last week the one corresponding to PSG has been presented, although it is not ruled out that in the coming days extensions of some of these complaints will be made with the contributions of new data.”
“Additionally, La Liga has contracted law firms in France and Switzerland, including the French firm of lawyer Juan Branco, with the aim of undertaking administrative and judicial actions before the competent French bodies and before the European Union as soon as possible.”
Javier Tebas was also swift to hit out at Manchester City’s successful pursuit of Erling Haaland, and raised concerns over the Premier League club’s ability to sanction such a high-profile move given the expenses he believes were at stake in a deal.
Tebas explained, “They must have done something, because (Erling) Haaland asked the clubs for more apart from the €60 million that has been paid.”
Only time will tell whether anything will come of such complaints as both Manchester City and PSG have vigorously defended themselves against Tebas’ complaints in the past.
In July 2020, the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned a two-year Champions League ban imposed on City by Uefa for Financial Fair Play breaches.
The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
“Tebas really can’t deal with rejection 😂”
“Obsession is crazy”
“Tebas still salty madrid couldn’t get Haaland”
“This guy wakes up and immediately thinks of Manchester City doesn’t he.”
“I’ve never seen a more obsessed human being than Javier Tebas”
“Why are they so salty Mbappe and Haaland didn’t join la Liga 😂 I get the complaint against the Mbappe deal but wtf have we done.”
““They must have done something” …. I like it, concise, well reasoned, articulate, evidence based, clearly a vast amount of research involved. Gonna be difficult for Khaldoon and the boys to get out of this one … once they stop pissing themselves laughing of course!”
“But they signed touchy-men for 100m what’s the problem?”
