The biggest football League in the world, the English Premier League, reportedly has failed to be one of the biggest loopholes many clubs are using to comply with the FFP. It has learned that the EPL has failed to negate the use of profits from the sale of hotels, training ground facilities and other such assets in a tweet by leading football journalist David Ornstein. 

Manchester City have been in the eye of the storm in recent months over massive allegations about their Financial Fair Play. It is well known that there are 115 charges on the Blues and the investigation could take up to one year to conclude. 

Should the Citizens are to be found guilty of the charges, they will likely be met with a huge fine as a minimum punishment. The maximum punishment could see them be banned from the league or even given relegation with all their trophies being declared void. 

Final England squad announced for Euro 2024

Jack Grealish and Harry Maguire missed out on selection from the Euro 2024 squad as Gareth Southgate announced the final team for the tournament. James Maddison didn’t make it to the team and in a conversation with the media, he spoke about how disappointed he was with the decision. 

The former Leicester City star said on social media, “Devastated doesn't quite cut it. Trained well and worked hard all week but if I'm honest with myself, my form for Spurs when coming back from injury in the second half of the season probably wasn't at the levels I had set which gave Gareth a decision to make.”

Maddinson also wrote, “I still thought there would be a space for me in a 26-man squad as I feel I bring something different and had been a mainstay in this whole qualifying campaign for Euro 2024 in Germany but the manager has made the decision and I have to respect that.”

Finally ending his long post the attacker said, “I'll be back, I have no doubt. Wishing the boys all the luck in the world out in Germany, an unbelievable group and lads that I literally call some of my best friends. I genuinely hope football comes home."
