Wenger takes swipe at Financial Fair Play powers

Arsene Wenger has cast doubts over UEFA’s ability to enforce the Financial Fair Play rules, according to a report in The Daily Mail.


European football’s governing body has brought in the new regulations to ensure that teams stop spending more than they earn and will begin banning teams from European competitions in the 2013/14 season if they do not comply with FFP.


Wenger believes that with the emergence of Manchester City, who recently posted a record breaking loss of over £190m, Paris Saint-Germain and Malaga, who are all backed by wealthy Middle Eastern owners, UEFA will struggle to resist the powers of such clubs and soften their stance on the rule.


The Arsenal boss said: “Will they [UEFA] have the legal power to force it through? I question it. In other countries, you have as well Paris St Germain, Malaga. Once they represent a force together, it will be difficult to fight against.


“When I see the numbers announced by Manchester City, do you really think it will work in 2013? I cannot see it when the wage bill is bigger than the turnover. Frankly, that cannot happen in one year.”
