Premier League Shells Out Millions Fighting Liverpool’s Rivals!

Premier League Shells Out Millions Fighting Liverpool’s Rivals!

The Premier League has spent millions of pounds in fighting its own clubs in the last season, as said by reports.

An exclusive from The Times states that the world’s richest league shells out nearly £30m on legal counsel as the rising cost of its enforcing Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton fell short of these rules twice in the 2023-2024 season. They were hit with a 10-point deduction initially, which was reduced to 6 points on appeal, for breaching the spending limit during the 2021-22 season as well.

Everton were then handed a further 2-point deduction for crossing the line again for the three-year period until 2022-23.

The Toffees initially appealed against that verdict before withdrawing the appeal after the club secured their Position in the Premier League.

Other Premier League Clubs Also Face Similar Situation!

Nottingham Forest, meanwhile, were docked 4 points for breaking the PSR during the time period of 3 years until 2022-23. Their appeal against their decision was rejected.

Leicester will return to the Premier League next season after winning the championship and if the charge is proven, they might also face points deduction.

Manchester City Could Be The Next Defaulter!

The news came to light earlier this month that Man City have started a legal fight against the Premier League.

The defending champions are intent on ending the league’s Associated Party Transaction rules, which they claim is unlawful, and are seeking damages from the PL.

The legal challenge is being held over in the next two weeks, the result of this legal battle could be beneficial to all PL clubs, particularly the Reds.
