Everton, a prestigious English Premier League (EPL) club, is in danger of being relegated due to a point cut.
England’s ‘The Sun’ reported on the 25th (Korean time), “Everton is facing the risk of a massive point cut that could lead to relegation from the EPL for violating the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.”
Everton spent a huge transfer fee in the 2021-22 season. At that time, Everton signed a total of 11 players, including Andros Townsend, Asmir Begovic, Dele Alli and Vitaly Mikolenko, and Anwar El Gazi and Donny van de Beek on loan.바카라사이트
The EPL, which has watched this part, is looking at Everton for violating the FFP regulations. The EPL allows up to 105 million pounds (approximately 166.9 billion won) of losses for each team over three years. On the other hand, Everton recorded a huge loss of 371.8 million pounds (about 591 billion won) in three seasons until the 2021-22 season. This is a difference of 266.8 million pounds (approximately 424.1 billion won).
First of all, Everton is expressing its opposition to the EPL’s claim. Everton are protesting: “We strongly dispute the allegations. We have followed all financial rules and regulations with a team of independent experts.” A hearing in the case is likely to take place before the end of the season.
It is the second EPL club’s FFP violation after Manchester City last time. The last time Manchester City were charged with violating the FFP after 101 charges over nine years, they launched an investigation.
It would be fatal if Everton actually suffered a point cut for violating the FFP rules. Currently, Everton is 15th with 26 points from wins. Since they are only two points behind West Ham United (24 points) in the relegation zone, they are more likely to be relegated to the second division.
Derby County, whose points were cut for the same charge in the past in November 2021, lost nine points. If Everton is cut 9 points like Derby, considering the number of games left in the season, relegation is inevitable.
