Malaga Hit with One-Year UEFA Ban



quote:

Spanish club Malaga is enjoying an outstanding season, both on the league side and in the UEFA Champions League, but they are set to pay the price for the financial problems that plagued them earlier in the year.

UEFA has slapped Malaga with a one-year ban from European club competitions for failing to pay player wages and tax bills on time. The suspension could include a second year if Malaga doesn’t settle all debts by a pre-set deadline. UEFA also issued Malaga a $396,000 fine.

Malaga was one of eight clubs hit with sanctions by FIFA for financial irregularities. Bucharest clubs Dinamo and Rapid, Serbian club Partizan Belgrade, and Hajduk Split and Osijek of Croatia could also face one-year suspensions if they don’t settle their debts by March 31st, 2013. Four of the teams were hit with €100,000, while Hajduk was slapped with a €80,000 fine.

You can't pay your bills? Here's a $400,000 fine!


That really worked well with Germany after WWI

Yeah, I've never understood that reasoning.

Now is Malaga about to be taken over by fascists?

Their owner is a lazy, multi-billionaire who isn't committed to the club.

re: Malaga Hit with One-Year UEFA Ban


I understand the logic, but am not opposed to a fine in this instance. When you have an owner who is capable of running a financially stable club, yet decides not to, what other punishment is there?

It's a Qatari based ownership group, correct?
