LaLiga explained this Saturday that it will denounce Paris Saint-Germain for having renewed Kylian Mbappé “attacking the economic sustainability of European football” and considers it “scandalous” that a club like the Parisian can afford those figures.
“LaLiga wants to state that this type of agreement threatens the economic sustainability of European football, putting hundreds of thousands of jobs and sporting integrity at risk in the medium term, not only in European competitions, but also in our domestic leagues,” he said. LaLiga in a note.
Minutes before its president, Javier Tebas, already indicated that the renewal of Mbappé with PSG is an “insult to football”. “It is scandalous that a club like PSG, which last season lost more than 220 million euros, after having accumulated losses of 700 million euros in recent seasons with a sports squad cost around 650 million for this season 21/22, can face an agreement of these characteristics”, adds LaLiga.
An agreement that occurs “as long as those clubs that could assume the arrival of the player without seeing their wage bill compromised, are left without being able to sign him.” “For all of the above, LaLiga is going to file a complaint against PSG before UEFA, administrative and tax authorities in France and before the competent bodies of the European Union, to continue defending the economic ecosystem of European football and the sustainability of the same”.
“On previous occasions, LaLiga has already made complaints against PSG for non-compliance with UEFA’s financial fair play as a result of which UEFA severely sanctioned PSG, although the TAS revoked them in a strange resolution,” recalls the body chaired by Tebas .
In addition, LaLiga assures that “many European football institutions were hopeful that with the entry of the president of PSG, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, in the management bodies of European football such as UEFA or the Presidency of the ECA, he would refrain from carrying out these practices knowing the serious damage they cause, but it hasn’t been like that, quite the opposite”, he highlights.
“Being PSG with unacceptable salary masses, with large economic losses in previous seasons, it assumes an impossible investment in this situation, which undoubtedly implies non-compliance with the current economic control regulations not only of UEFA, but of football itself. French,” he says.
Finally, LaLiga believes that these behaviors “denote even more that the ‘state clubs’ do not respect or want to respect the rules of an economic sector as important as football, key to the sustainability of hundreds of thousands of jobs This type of behavior led by Nasser Al-Khelaifi due to his status as a member of the former UEFA, president of the ECA is a danger to European football at the same level as the Super League,” the statement concludes.
