- La Liga President Javier Tebas wants PSG and Man City removed from Champions League
- Tebas claims that both clubs are over-spending when it comes to the transfer window
- Tebas also warned against launching a proposed new European Super League in 2024
La Liga president Javier Tebas wants Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germian to be kicked out of the Champions League for violating Financial Fair Play rules.
Tebas also warned Premier League clubs they would be making a huge mistake if they backed a proposed new European Super League in 2024 as it would ruin domestic football.
He directed his criticisms to Manchester City and PSG, whom he warned were putting football at risk with their massive spending power and behaviour.
“There are clubs who could not care less what their real incomes are when they want to sign a player because they receive incomes from a state,” said Tebas, citing City and PSG by name.

“It forces other clubs into an economic situation which is really living on the edge. It skews the balance of the entire European football structure.
“This is no longer sport. This is no longer an industry. It becomes more like a toy, the plaything of a state. And when it’s a plaything, kids start playing with other kids. You end up ruining the entire system.
“Indeed the origin of this entire problem with the Super League is the inflationary effect that Manchester City and PSG have created across the whole of Europe because the rest of the clubs in Europe want money to compete with these guys.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Manchester City will suffer huge financial losses if they are banned from the Champions League during the 2019-20 campaign.
According to sportbible.com citing New York Times, the Premier League champions are currently under investigation by UEFA over alleged breaches of the Financial Fair Play rules, which will attract a one year ban from the continent’s premier club tournament.
