All clubs found in breach of FFP were given the opportunity to negotiate a settlement with UEFA. Only those that failed to reach a settlement were referred to the adjudicatory panel for punishment.

That's in the FFP regulations.

Interesting that City offer no denial and respond by saying their information should not have been hacked.

There's nothing really to deny as far as I can see.
Threatening UEFA over FFP penalties is a pretty serious charge although I am sure you will defend it as normal negotiations.

1 down 6 to go comment also reprehensible from City club lawyer.

PSG worse by implying political issues for UEFA if penalties were pursued.

I'm sure we did threaten to sue the arse off UEFA if we didn't get a favourable settlement. Would be disappointed if we didn't.

Instead you engaged a corrupt UEFA official to help with the process.

Your fans will be cheering the UEFA anthem at the next CL home game after this has come out.

FFP should be scrapped so every club can do it. Whats the point of a rule for everyone bar 2.

There needs to be some sort of a rule against being financed by a state.

In a normal marketplace there are regulations against businesses receiving state backed support.

Not surprising in the least. There were also significant gas supply contracts signed with Qatar by France prior to the WC at subsidised rates. Far too much political influence in France atm from Qatar.

Meanwhile rubin kazan have been banned from european comps next season for overspending by 8 million, unfortunately they couldn't bribe there way out of it like some other oil money/slavery backed clubs.

That's the way you go about things just pick on the little guy it solves all problems, shows there taking things seriously

It's just blatant corruption and cheating, same old story with people it never changes

Our total revenue over seven years wouldn't be far off £2.7bn.
Sure, with all those half empty stadiums man. citeh continually host and no fans around the globe it wouldn't be too far away.

Citeh are a smaller club than tottenham or newcastle maybe even everton, get real son.

Rubin Kazan reached a settlement with UEFA over FFP the same season we did. The opportunity was available to all clubs,I think there was around 20 settlements all up.

Rubin then got a fine for breaching that settlement.

This is now their third breach, hence the ban.
