Paris Saint-Germain : La Liga chief says club makes mockery of system

Posted September 08, 2017

English Premier League club #Manchester City have confirmed via a statement that they are seeking legal counsel ahead of taking "appropriate action" against #La Liga chief #Javier Tebas after the Spaniard alleged that City has infringed Financial Fair Play regulations.

City were taken over by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008 while PSG have been owned by Qatar since 2011.

"We are not looking to kick them out, (but) if we don't do anything then now it will be PSG and Manchester City and then in the future it will be a sheikh from Bahrain, or a Malysian businessman who will "deform" the industry". By contrast, Mr. Tebas' statements are ill-informed and in parts pure fiction.

PSG spent a staggering £199million on landing Neymar from Barcelona at the beginning of August, though La Liga have said they would try to block the move from going through.

"I need more money from TV, otherwise Manchester City with its oil will take all these players", Tebas, head of Spain's top flight, said at the Soccerex conference in Manchester on Wednesday.

"What we have done is caught them peeing in the bed, or in the swimming pool".

"We note the public comments made by Mr Tebas today and earlier this week", read the statement.

But City were left furious over accusations made with regards to Pablo Maffeo, Aleix Garcia, Douglas Luiz, Marlos Moreno and Olarenwaju Kayode.

When asked if Girona cooked the books, Tebas said: "They were trying to but they didn't manage to do it".

"These words are not worthy of an institution as respectable and effective as the Spanish league".

Two days on from calling on UEFA to investigate Man City's spending, Tebas has once again taken aim at the Citizens and also accused PSG of financial wrongdoing.

Ben Arfa's lawyer, Jean-Jacques Bertrand, claims the club have violated the LFP's Professional Football Charter that states such a measure can only be temporary and for reasons of squad management.

He claimed: "If there is too much money in the market, prices go up. The transfers are merely the result of years of financial doping at PSG".
