Recommended Posts

Expanding on above slightly..

 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/news/10766475/Manchester-City-to-be-made-to-pay-a-high-price-for-spending-spree-under-Uefa-Financial-Fair-Play-rules.html

 

Manchester City were facing a huge Financial Fair Play sanction on Monday night as Uefa prepared to rule that the spending spree that transformed them into a superpower of the game breached its much-vaunted cost-control regulations.

Telegraph Sport has learnt that City, whose billionaire owner, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan, has bankrolled the most successful period in the club’s history, will this week be found guilty of failing to comply with FFP rules – barring an improbable 11th-hour reprieve.

I love the idea that breaching FFP can be resolved by paying a fine... that's some deterrent to clubs throwing hundreds of millions of pounds at players :laugh:

Pep developed him right out the door.

Figured this would be the best place for this. I would have thought Baseball & Basketball would have topped the list but I guess they have less players or at least less star players that demand huge wages.

The amount that they're paid really doesn't correlate with the number of trophies that they've won really does it? One league title, one FA Cup and one League Cup since they won the lottery in 2008 is a rather feeble haul for the "best paid in sport".
