Finance guru issues 'new evidence' claim amid fresh twist in Man City FFP 'investigation'

Javier Tebas’ accusations of financial impropriety against Man City will only lead to repercussions if he has discovered “new evidence.”

That is the view of finance expert Doctor Dan Plumley, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the La Liga chief’s extraordinary attack on the reigning Premier League champions.

Tebas has claimed that both City and Paris Saint-Germain are guilty of “continuously violating” Uefa’s profit and sustainability laws, per the Daily Mail last Wednesday (15 June).

He asserts that artificially inflated sponsorship deals have been used to supercharge the pair’s standing within FFP parameters.

City successfully defended a similar charge at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in July 2020 after it emerged that Uefa’s allegations were time-barred.

And Plumley suggests that European football’s governing body is unlikely to have any more luck should they choose to launch a second legal attack on the Abu Dhabi-backed club.

“I haven’t seen any new evidence that Tebas or La Liga are looking to present,” the Sheffield Hallam University expert told Football Insider’s Adam Williams.

They are serious allegations, but what is new here?

“If they have got something new, we’d be having a different conversation. But the comments we have seen are covering what has gone before.

“Yes, there are ongoing investigations. We know the Premier League are still looking into Manchester City. But I can’t see it pushing much further unless they are bringing something new to the table.

“We also have to consider whether Uefa has the appetite for it. They have already been burned. They tried to take on City and lost in the CAS case.”
