supporters fatalistic about Mbappé, but not angry

La Liga announces that it will file a complaint against PSG for the extension of Mbappé

La Liga announces in a press release that it will file a complaint with UEFA, French administrative and tax bodies as well as the competent European authorities concerning the extension of Kylian Mbappé to PSG.

In a press release published this Saturday evening, LaLiga announces that it is filing a complaint against PSG before UEFA, the French administrative and tax authorities and before the European Union against PSG after Kylian Mbappé’s extension.

Mbappé’s extension ‘threatens the economic sustainability of European football’

The organization of the Spanish championship warns that such an extension, signed until 2025 and announced just before the match against FC Metz, “threatens the economic sustainability of European football, putting hundreds of thousands of jobs and l sporting integrity, not only of European competitions, but also of our national leagues in the medium term”.

“It is outrageous that a club like PSG, which lost more than €220 million last season, after racking up losses of €700 million in recent seasons (even declaring sponsorship revenue of a very dubious amount), with a workforce cost of around 650 million euros for this 21/22 season, could face an agreement of these characteristics while the clubs which could assume the arrival of the player without seeing their compromised payroll, find themselves without being able to sign it”, indignant La Liga.

Press release points to ‘bizarre decision’ in favor of PSG earlier

This is prompting the body to file a complaint against PSG before UEFA, the French administrative and tax authorities and before the competent bodies of the European Union, “in order to continue to defend the economic ecosystem of European football and its sustainability. “.

LaLiga recalls having lodged complaints against PSG for non-compliance with UEFA Financial Fair Play previously, following which UEFA sanctioned PSG for a long period, “although the TAS canceled them in a bizarre decision,” the statement said.

“LaLiga and many European football institutions hoped that with the entry of PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi into European football management bodies such as the UEFA exco or the ECA presidency , he would refrain from these practices knowing the serious damage they cause, but this was not the case, quite the contrary” points out the Spanish organization.

State clubs “do not respect and do not want to respect the rules”

LaLiga points to an “unacceptable PSG wage bill”, with the huge economic losses in previous seasons, which should make such an investment for Kylian Mbappé impossible. “Which undoubtedly implies a violation of the current rules of economic control not only of UEFA, but also of French football itself,” the statement added.

Still fighting against state-owned clubs, the Spanish championship recalls that these “do not respect and do not want to respect the rules of an economic sector as important as football, which is the key to the sustainability of hundreds thousands of jobs”.

LaLiga directly points to the behavior of Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of PSG, who as a member of UEFA and president of the ECA, would be “a danger to European football at the same level as the Super League”.
