La Liga Files Official Complaint With UEFA Over PSG

La Liga has filed a complaint with UEFA against Paris Saint-Germain, joining the other that was filed in April against Manchester City. Following the decision of Kylian Mbappe to stay in the French capital, the Spanish league decided to take action. 

ESPN relayed the statement made by the league, which states that these clubs are constantly breaching the current financial fair play regulations. Javier Tebas, president of La Liga, considers that these practices done by PSG and Manchester City alter the ecosystem and the sustainability of football.

Furthermore, Tebas adds that these two sides harm all European clubs and leagues and only help artificially inflate the market with money not forged by football revenue. 

“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,” Tebas said.

La Liga details that it has hired law firms in France and Switzerland, including the French lawyer Juan Branco to undertake “administrative and judicial actions before the competent French bodies and before the European Union as soon as possible.”

The statement also points out that La Liga is studying different representation options in Switzerland due to potential conflicts of interest of Nasser Al-Khelaifi as a result of his various roles at PSG, UEFA, ECA, and beIN Sports.
