Violation of financial rules: La Liga reports PSG to the EU Commission

Violation of financial rules: La Liga reports PSG to the EU Commission

The fact that the French series champion Paris Saint-Germain La Liga is a thorn in the side is no longer a secret. Now the Spanish professional league has sued the club from the French capital for believing that the cash injections PSG are receiving from Qatar “distort the market and violate the EU regulation on foreign subsidies.” The league announced this in a statement on Saturday.

Only recently, the sheikh club sealed the transfer of 22-year-old Goncalo Ramos (Benfica Lisbon) and tricked the so-called financial fair play. From the point of view of the Spanish league, the systematic funding that flowed to Paris is more problematic than such an isolated case.

Complaints against PSG and Man City

Although the complaint about the European Commission’s path is a new step, it is not the first time that La Liga has taken action against big European clubs in general. In the past, too, the association has repeatedly rebelled against those clubs that are financed by foreign donors. A complaint had already been filed against Manchester City in April 2022. Just two months later, a complaint against Paris Saint-Germain was filed with UEFA. In both cases, the background to this was alleged violations of existing financial regulations.

In particular, Javier Tebas, president of the Spanish football league, is considered the leader of the movement, which is rebelling against the financing of clubs like PSG and ManCity. The Spaniard had also publicly protested against the implementation of the Super League. “They are trying to deceive us,” Tebas was quoted as saying.
