Zero fair­ness in Uefa fair play deal­ings

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

At the cen­tre of the Der Spiegel al­le­ga­tions about Uefa’s weak­ness in ap­ply­ing the fi­nan­cial fair play reg­u­la­tions to Paris St-Ger­main and Manch­ester City is a set of ad­min­is­tra­tors plainly un­fit for the pur­pose.

At the very heart of them is Gianni In­fantino, whom re­cent events and dis­clo­sures have shown to be a dis­as­trous choice as Fifa pres­i­dent.

The only man who comes out of it re­motely clean is Brian Quinn, the Celtic di­rec­tor and for­mer In­ter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund econ­o­mist who quit Uefa’s FFP in­ves­ti­ga­tory cham­ber – the grander the name, the greater the in­com­pe­tence – over the pal­try fines handed out.

The chances of any fur­ther res­ig­na­tions, from the clubs, Uefa or any­where else are, we can all be quite sure, ab­so­lutely zero.
