The Executive Committee of the European Football Union (UEFA) will decide on Thursday in Nyon via a reform of the Financial Fair Play (FFP).
Accordingly, the controversial and often insufficiently implemented FFP should be replaced by new regulations for Financial Sustainability. According to matching media reports, clubs are therefore likely to spend more than 70 percent of their revenue for transfers, salaries and advisory bodies, but a salary top limit required by many sites will not exist.
The guidelines co-developed by the European Club Association of ECA should be introduced in a continuous process. First, the clubs should probably invest 90 percent of their revenue in the squad. “The new rules should ensure that expenses are better to control, while investments are promoted,” said the ECA Chairman and PSG-Boss Nasser Al-Khelaifi: “The new rules must be simple, fair, transparent and enforceable. “
In the past, the FFP proved to be vulnerable because the rules could be bypassed. Serious penalties rarely existed in violations. Bayern-Boss Oliver Kahn spoke in the new guidelines on the financial sustainability of “a milestone”. He hopes that a “light brake in the salaries and transfer sums” comes in. As a punishment, for example, a restriction of the Champions to the Europa League threatens in case of violations.
“In this process, many different interests had to be considered. It was important to us that there is no freelance ticks for dubious business. We have to live against the background and we can live as a Bundesliga with the compromise achieved,” Fernando Carro, chairman of the management from Bayer Leverkusen, to SID request.
