Complaint to UEFA over Kylian Mbappe Deal Ready: La Liga president Javier Tebas | Soccer News


La Liga president Javier Tebas said on Tuesday that the Spanish league will send their official complaint to UEFA in “one or two days” over Kylian Mbappe’s new contract at Paris Saint-Germain. Tebas said it was ‘impossible that there was no cheating’, referring to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules, and that La Liga ‘won’t allow a European club to destroy the ecosystem of European football”. Mbappe rejected Real Madrid to sign a new three-year contract at PSG last week, prompting Tebas to say the deal was an “insult to football” given the French club’s financial losses.

PSG suffered a loss of 224.3 million euros ($240 million) in 2020/21, an increase of 80% from the previous year, the DNCG’s annual report announced earlier this this month.

“The complaint that we are going to present to UEFA is already drafted and in the examination phase,” Tebas told Madrid, adding that it would be sent “in one or two days”.

La Liga introduced a system of strict spending restrictions in 2013, which includes budgets imposed on each Spanish club according to their financial situation.

La Liga insists the controls increase the league’s competitive balance and encourage clubs to take longer-term approaches to spending.

“We are not going to allow a European club to destroy the ecosystem of European football,” Tebas said.

“Basically, it doesn’t matter to us who is the owner, whether it is a state or not, the problem is the attitude of the owner because there is no limit, the losses do not matter , they spend as much money as they want, they cheat with state sponsorships…that’s the problem.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said in an interview with TAUT in Paris on Friday that he rejected La Liga’s criticism of Mbappe’s new contract.


“I absolutely disagree. There are too many insults in football anyway, and I think every league should worry about its own situation,” Ceferin said.

“I don’t think it’s fair for one league to criticize the other league. As far as I know, Real’s offer for Mbappe was similar to PSG’s offer,” Ceferin added.
