AS Roma, Inter Milan and Monaco among tens clubs to reach FFP settlements

Earlier today, UEFA announced that ten clubs which were under investigation for non-compliance with Financial Fair Play (FFP) have individually agreed to settlement agreements.

The clubs are AS Monaco, AS Roma, Besiktas, Inter Milan, FC Krasnodar, FC Lokomotiv Moskva and Sporting Lisbon and, for minor breaches, FC Rostov, Kardemir Karabukspor and PFC CSKA Sofia.

It was also announced that VfL Wolfsburg have satisfied the break-even requirement and are no longer under investigation.

Inter Milan were dealt the stiffest punishment, a £14.5 million fine and 21-man squad restriction in European competition for overspending during the 2013-14 campaign.

The Nerazzurri will have their squad limited to 22 players the following season, but that restriction could be lifted for the 2017-18 season if certain targets are met. Those targets include limiting losses for the 2016 financial year to £22 million, and breaking even by 2017.

AS Monaco were fined £9.5 million and handed a 22-man squad restriction during European competition.

AS Roma were given a £4.5 million fine and will see their European squad limited to 22 players for the next two seasons; a sanction which will be lifted if they achieve a loss of £22 million or less for 2015 and 2016.

    So yeah let’s punish clubs who are losing money by–fining them more money? UEFA logic SMBH.

      Nobody said they’re losing money. They’re overspending based on income, which often means sugar daddy infusion. Considering the clubs, AS Monaco, AS Roma, Besiktas, Inter Milan, FC Krasnodar, FC Lokomotiv Moskva, Sporting Lisbon FC Rostov, Kardemir Karabukspor and PFC CSKA Sofia, that’s obvious in most cases, very likely in the rest.

      My question: where does the money go? I say the clubs should have to turn it over for youth football initiatives in their home countries, or home of their FA in Monaco’s case. Had hey clubs invested in youth to begin with, they’d not likely be in FFP trouble.

        Ill tell you where the money goes:

        Straight into the pockets of Bayern, Barça, MUFC, Arsenal, RM et al.

        FFP is simply a way to try to keep clubs from competing with the pre-existing big clubs. Its biggest advocate was Rummenidge at Bayern (who happen to have the market cornered in Germany already), as well as the other aforementioned clubs. That alone should make one smell a rat.
