UEFA Opens PSG Financial Fair Play Investigation After Transfer Activity

Tebas spoke to David Garrido in Manchester using a bizarre analogy to explain his point

"PSG has a lot more from sponsorship than Manchester United". It can't be. we can't accept this'.

Tebas, president of the Spanish football league (LFP), accused PSG of "financial doping" and "peeing in the pool" over their purchase of Brazilian striker Neymar and reiterated his view that City were breaking Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

"We note the public comments made by Mr Tebas today and earlier this week", City Football Group said in a widely-reported statement on Wednesday.

Tebas recently wrote to UEFA urging them to investigate PSG and City and on Wednesday he repeated his view that City's spending on players came from "oil money".

Trump Gives $1 Million, Still Can't Win
A vote on the emergency supplemental disaster request has been scheduled for late next week in the House. Sheila Jackson Lee has already said it could take an aid package of $150 billion to handle the disaster.

The La Liga president says Manchester City's solicitors have been in touch with the league following his complaint to UEFA, as the argument threatens to turn into a legal battle.

"Additionally, La Liga calls on UEFA to open a similar investigation into Man City", the association of Spain's top football teams said in its statement.

The Ligue 1 side also brought in Dani Alves from Juventus this summer, who reportedly joined on a deal worth £12 million a year, per Jonathan Smith at ESPN FC.

"This is when the football clubs have competitive advantage not coming from club itself. If we don't control this, the smaller leagues will not grow and the whole industry will be destructured".

Soyuz MS-04 spacecraft with three crew members starts deorbiting burn
Only seven Russian men have logged more time, including Gennady Padalka, the world record-holder with 878 days in orbit. During the mission, she performed a spacewalk and also become the first woman to command the space station twice.

"If the Spanish clubs have received financial help from the state, directly or indirectly, they need to be punished, because that is not correct". "If [Neymar] had gone to Manchester United maybe I would not have gone to the courts because this is not financial doping and maybe they have the money to buy this player". We believe the European Union need to investigate, too. We carried out this study of the accounts - income streams, sponsorship et cetera.

PSG chief Al-Khelaifi: Those "thinking about FFP I tell them ... go have a coffee and don't worry about us, we are in good hands".

Neymar is one of the crown jewels in world football, both as a player and a commercial force, and neither Barcelona nor La Liga are happy that he was lured away against their will. This is not football's market price.

He also said PSG, who signed Neymar from Barcelona for a world-record 222-million-euro ($264.74-million) fee in August, were "laughing at the system".

US Pressure on North Korea Is 'Futile': Putin
The warning prompted a threat from North Korea to launch a missile strike on the US Pacific territory of Guam. Trump said last month Pyongyang would "be met with fire and fury " if it continued to threaten the U.S.

Tebas said sanctions so far imposed by UEFA for breaching FFP rules - heavy fines and a demand to reduce squad sizes - were insufficient.
