Klopp: UEFA must act on FFP breaches


Jurgen Klopp believes UEFA must take action against any clubs if they have broken the rules on Financial Fair Play.
German magazine Der Spiegel made a number of claims against City in a series of articles, which are based on documents purportedly attained from whistleblowers Football Leaks.
The reporting claims Sheikh Mansour’s City regime have topped up multi-million-pound sponsorship deals with Abu Dhabi companies, using their owner’s fortune, in order to meet UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) stipulations.
Though unaware of the report’s details, Liverpool boss Klopp believes UEFA should take appropriate action if there have been any breaches by and clubs, as the German believes the rules are a good thing for football if followed and enforced.
“I heard about the Der Spiegel story, but I didn’t read it so far,” Klopp said.
“It’s really difficult to comment but what I can say in general is that FFP is a really good thing. But we always thought that.”
Currently two points off league-leading City, Liverpool face Fulham on Sunday, but in response to the much-publicised reports, Klopp stated he supports the idea of UEFA’s financial regulation.
“If it’s in place, they (UEFA) have to do something with it. I have no clue what happens, I know it is about Paris obviously and Man City,” he said.
