Manchester City 'hid' £30m from UEFA FFP investigators. Football leaks going crazy
LINK

here we fricking gooooooooooooooooo

quote:

UEFA President Platini and General Secretary Gianni Infantino had repeatedly insisted in interviews that clubs found in violation of the FFP rules could expect harsh penalties. The most severe punishment: suspension from the Champions League. Given the strident rhetoric, the football world was shocked when UEFA reached settlement agreements with both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in mid-May 2014.


quote:

During the FFP proceedings, Infantino met with club bosses from Paris and Manchester on several occasions for secret talks, even supplying them with confidential materials. He proposed compromises that he was unauthorized to propose. In short: He betrayed his own organization.



Also potential players who popped hot for drugs that has been covered up

re: Manchester City 'hid' £30m from UEFA FFP investigators. Football leaks going crazy
quote:

The Investigative Chamber required Paris Saint-Germain to open its books to the body for the first time in July 2013. One year earlier, the state-owned Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) had signed an "Agreement for the Promotion of the Image of Qatar" with the team, which was to run for five years and generate revenues averaging 215 million euros per year for the club.It was a ludicrous amount of money, far more than the market would bear and inconsistent with anything that might smack of economic logic for the Qatari company. By comparison, FC Bayern Munich's main sponsor at the time, Deutsche Telekom, paid the team an annual sum of 29 million euros. It looked, in other words, as though the marketing contract was merely a façade, meant to allow the Qataris to pump as much money into the club as possible.

The agreement with the Qatar Tourism Authority consisted of a mere five pages and obligated Paris Saint-Germain to advertise for Qatar and "participate annually, at the request of Qatar, in its promotion activities." Otherwise, the team had to do nothing for QTA: It didn't have to put the company's logos on its jerseys, it didn't have to put up advertising in its stadium, it didn't even have to put a link on the club home page. The real reason for the excessive payments was a different one - which is also spelled out in the five-page agreement: Money from the Qatar Tourism Authority was to be used to buy players. By doing so, Paris Saint-Germain was to help Qatar become "a major player in the sporting world."

In response to a query about the deal, PSG stated that it was not a sponsoring deal, but that it was a "nation branding" agreement -- marketing for the entire country of Qatar. "Nation branding is of another scale compared to traditional sponsoring contracts," club executives wrote.



of course PSG was even worse

Nothing will happen. Theyll say something about punishing the current teams only harms the people that had nothing to do with it. Which is one of the lamest excuses ever in life.

Nothing will happen to City. I was waiting on this thread though.

Pretty rich the amount of criticism coming from all over the place towards City/PSG like other clubs haven’t been a part of scandals before. This will be forgotten by Christmas.

The leak I am most interested in is the one where supposedly a multi-time UCL winning player failed a doping test. My money is on GOATnaldo or Modric.

This is more than just a scandal bc the legal ramifications

Also the leaks showed that the European Super league talks actually did happen

This would ruin the sport, but I can totally see it happening.

City and PSG have both not been shite clubs for a long time. Both have history, not nearly as much as they are making now, but they had accomplishments before their takeovers.

City was a yo-yo club it’s history was getting promoted to the first division then going back down.

PSG doesn’t have any real history as it’s not even 50 years old and was never a power until it’s owners came around.

There's no way you get a body like Juan Mata through honest means.

On a scale of Blackpool to Leeds this is like a Blackburn Rovers.
