"I know I need to exclude PSG from European competition..."
Words from UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin directed to ECA (European Club Association) leaders report L'Equipe.
PSG's financial clout and the recent signings of Neymar (222 million euro) and Kylian Mbappe (180 million euro but managed as a loan deal) are still causing ripples in the world of football. UEFA recently announced that a formal investigation would be conducted to see if te Parisian outfit had breached any of the established UEFA Financial Fair-play regulations.
The president of UEFA, Aleksander Ceferin is conscious of the responsibility he holds in dealing with the matter and was reported to have claimed at last week's ECA (European Club Association) meeting: "If I want to attain the same popularity achieved by Michel (Platini), I know I need to exclude PSG from participating in UEFA organised competitions", Despite the French sports daily carrying the story with this quote, UEFA have refuted the claim.
"We're not afraid to implement punishment", stated Ceferin in an interview with L'Equipe in August and he recently added that "no-one and no club is above the law".
Paris Saint-Germain spent more than 400 million euro during the recent transfer window and during recent player presentations club president Al-Khelaïf has reiterated that the club has nothing to hide: "We're calm and have nothing to hide and have worked inside the UEFA guidelines"
