Everton Under Investigation For Breaking FFP Rules

Everton Football Club released the following statement on their website:

Everton Football Club is disappointed to hear of the Premier League’s decision to refer an allegation of a breach of Profit & Sustainability regulations to an independent commission for review.

The Club strongly contests the allegation of non-compliance and together with its independent team of experts is entirely confident that it remains compliant with all financial rules and regulations.

Everton is prepared to robustly defend its position to the commission. The Club has, over several years, provided information to the Premier League in an open and transparent manner and has consciously chosen to act with the utmost good faith at all times.

The Club will not be making any further comment at this time.

HERE is what the Premier League statement said.

First it was Man City, then Chelsea, and now Everton? These corner flag posts are the worst. 

If Everton are found to have been in breach of Premier League Financial Fair Play regulations, they could receive a hefty fine or a points deduction.
