With the imminent world record transfer of Neymar to PSG expected to go through in aproximately in 2 days time, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has criticized the deal and questioned the effectiveness of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, which stipulates that a club’s wage bill must not exceed 70 percent of its revenue.
“There are clubs that can pay fees like that, Manchester City and PSG are such. Everyone knows that,” Klopp told reporters in Munich on Wednesday.
“I thought fair play was made so that situations like that can’t happen. That’s more of a suggestion than a real rule. I don’t understand that. I don’t know how it happens,” Klopp added.
UEFA told Reuters on Wednesday that no complaint had been received about PSG, adding that it would not block any potential deal in advance.
