UEFA Ease FFP Rules To Tempt Investors

UEFA has eased financial fair play rules on clubs in a bid to tempt investors after a tough three-year campaign to cut sky-high debt in the European game. With Gulf state-owned Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain still feeling the pain of sanctions ordered last year, UEFA’s executive eased the rules at a meeting in Prague on Monday. They will force clubs to give extra information on ownership, but will also start new voluntary financial revival plans to allow clubs to avoid sanctions and to spend on players if they have a “plausible and conservative” business plan. The new UEFA rules are clearly intended to attract investors and Europe’s top clubs welcomed the move. “The financial fair play rules are a very important tool for clubs to control their economic situation,” said European Clubs Association president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge of Bayern Munich. “Therefore, ECA calls on clubs to keep on supporting the financial fair play system and to work within the […] Read more »

Chelsea’s To-Do List for Champions League glory next season

Chelsea’s loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Round of 16 would have raised doubts in the minds of football pundits and fans alike over Mourinho’s ability to win the Champions League with Chelsea. While his Porto and Inter stints both fetched a Champions League medal each, his 3 years at Real Madrid and hitherto 5 years at Chelsea have been a dead ringer when it comes to European glory. Mourinho’s character will not let him mull over the losses and it is a given that the Portuguese manager would already be working on the reasons behind that failure. Mourinho has been a successful manager for Chelsea with 3 premier league titles, 3 League Cups, 1 FA Cup and a Community Shield in 2005 but has only reached the semi final stage of the Champions League, albeit thrice. Given Chelsea’s relative success with and without Mourinho at the helm, it is doubtful there could be a better combination to bring Europe’s most prized trophy back to […] Read more »
