The overtly outspoken La Liga chief Javier Tebas has questioned how slow the Man City investigations are going
La Liga chief Javier Tebas believes the investigations into Man City’s alleged crimes have “taken too long”.
Tebas refers to the investigations launched by the Premier League into over 100 alleged financial misconduct from Man City.
Tebas compares Man City with Barcelona!
The Citizens, of course, have denied all the allegations but many clubs, especially their Premier League and Champions League rivals, are eager to see the investigations into City’s financial dealings go faster.
“Now it is 2023, and nothing has moved on, but suddenly there is an inquiry,” he told the Financial Times Business of Football Summit.
“It has taken too long. We know there was an alleged breach of 100 articles. So any decisions will have to be adopted accordingly by the Premier League.”
Tebas compared the situation at Man City and the one at Barcelona in recent years.
“One of the worst things about financial controls is if you don’t follow or comply with it,” Tebas added.
“Barcelona are so important for LaLiga in Spain, but if I looked away and didn’t pay attention to what is happening with their finances, it would be a gross error.
“Our whole system would collapse. The numbers make it impossible for them to do transfer business in the summer. This needs to be resolved, and we need to act.”
Regardless of Tebas’ demands, the investigation will take time and could take years to complete.
