Jurgen Klopp press conference

Klopp: ‘Somebody should do something’ about FFP rule breakers

Jurgen Klopp has said that something should be done by the football rule-makers about those who have broken Financial Fair Play rules.

Much has been made of the claims by German publication Der Spiegel over the last week that Manchester City have overinflated the size of their sponsorship deals to enable them to fall inside the permitted losses that a club may make.

With leaked emails from within the Man City hierarchy seeming to confirm that the clubs middle eastern owners have had to pump in additional under the table funds, Jurgen Klopp has waded into the debate by saying that if foul play has occurred, something should be done about it by the powers that be.

“It is really difficult to comment but what I can say in general is that FFP is a really good thing,” the Liverpool boss said in his pre-match press conference ahead of his sides fixture against Fulham at Anfield tomorrow.

“But we always thought that, if it is in place, they have to do something with it. I have no clue what happens. I know it is about Paris and Man City. I’m not sure if other clubs are being talked about.

“I think FFP is a really good thing because it sets the rules. If everything is fine, then everything is fine.

“If not, then somebody should do something. That’s all I can say but I have no clue about the real story.”
