According to a report by journalist Tancredi Palmeri, UEFA are set to blow the whistle over Financial Fair Play and a new system of financial control will be implemented by the governing body – prompting many Manchester City supporters to react as this development emerges.
Indeed, as per the reporter, it will be announced that a new initiative shall be put in place which may allow ‘much more freedom of spending to clubs‘ – coming after City and UEFA’s legal battle over FFP regulations last season.
Should UEFA scrap Financial Fair Play, City fans?
The Sky Blues were handed a two-year European ban by the governing body in February 2020 after being accused of ‘serious breaches’ of FFP rules (BBC), but after a ruling from the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the punishment was overturned.
CAS then released a statement revealing that City ‘did not disguise equity funding as sponsorship contributions’ and the supposed breaches of FFP were ‘either not established or time-barred’ (The Independent).
In this UEFA development, a year on from the beginning of the saga, Palmeri has shared that they now seem set to scrap FFP and bring in a brand new system.
As a result, plenty of Man City fans have flocked to have their say, with one supporter labelling the timing of this news as ‘shocking’ whilst other drops a wide array of verdicts – find all of their reactions down below.
