Football: Neymar La Liga threatens FFP legal action against PSG

FOOTBALL; La Liga president, Javier Tebas, has threatened legal action if UEFA failed to properly investigate what he feels are clear breaches of the organisation’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules by Paris Saint-Germain.

The grounds of Tebas’ complaint are not made clear in an interview with Mundo Deportivo.
But he insists PSG’s desire to pay Neymar’s €222million buyout clause is not his only issue.
“We will [make a complaint about PSG] because they infringe UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules and also the European Union’s competition rules,” Tebas said.
“We will make a complaint to UEFA and if they don’t do anything we will take it to the competition tribunals in Switzerland and Brussels. And, from there, we don’t rule out going through the courts in France and Spain.
“It’s not [just to do with Neymar]. We planned [to make the complaint] earlier. If we’ve not done it sooner it’s because we planned to take the problem to UEFA’s people first and I said that to president [Aleksander] Ceferin, but there hasn’t been time.
“What worries me is La Liga can’t just sit around with its arms crossed. It’s not about Barca, it’s about Spanish football. Today it is Barca but tomorrow it could be Real [Madrid], Atletico or another team.”
