Chelsea and Manchester City are in danger of being relegated from the Premier League if they’re found guilty of having breached Financial Fair Play rules.
This is according to Stefan Borson, who was on Friday, reacting to the 10-point deduction the Premier slammed on Everton after they were found guilty of breaching FFP rules.
The Toffees were charged with the offence back in March after suffering financial losses of about £371.8m in three years — nearly three times what the Premier League allows in that period.
Earlier this year, Man City were slammed with a 115-count charge of FFP breaches that took place between 2009 and 2018, while Chelsea are currently being investigated for allegedly making illegal payments to third parties during the Roman Abramovic era, and Borson has now claimed that the two clubs may be hit with even harsher punishments than Everton.
He wrote on ‘X’: ‘Without seeing the judgement/award -10 points for Everton feels harsh for a straightforward FFP [Financial Fair Play] breach to me.
“But reinforces that sanctions against City [if proven] and now Chelsea [if charged and admitted on the off-books payments] will be potentially relegation inducing.”
Meanwhile, Everton have already reacted to the Premier League’s punishment, promising they will appeal the ruling.
