Daniel Farke refuses to comment on Everton FFP case

Leeds United boss Daniel Farke was not ready to comment on Everton’s FFP case as Leeds reportedly prepare to seek compensation in court.

Everton were charged with and punished for going against profit and sustainability rules earlier this week. As a result, the club have been docked 10 points by the Premier League and currently sit in 19th place after the international break.

When asked for a comment on the issue Farke said:

“No, I don’t comment on this decision. No comment from my side, it’s a topic for everyone involved.“

After the verdict, senior figures at Burnley, Leeds and Leicester confirmed their intention to sue Everton for a total of £300million after the club were found guilty of breaching financial fair play rules. Leeds and Leicester were relegated to the Championship last season, and Burnley have also added their support as they are convinced that Everton breached financial rules the previous season when they were relegated.

Everton released a club statement after the verdict:

“Everton Football Club is both shocked and disappointed by the ruling of the Premier League’s Commission.

“The club believes that the Commission has imposed a wholly disproportionate and unjust sporting sanction. The club has already communicated its intention to appeal the decision to the Premier League. The appeal process will now commence and the club’s case will be heard by an Appeal Board appointed pursuant to the Premier League’s rules in due course.

“Everton maintains that it has been open and transparent in the information it has provided to the Premier League and that it has always respected the integrity of the process. The club does not recognise the finding that it failed to act with the utmost good faith and it does not understand this to have been an allegation made by the Premier League during the course of proceedings. Both the harshness and severity of the sanction imposed by the commission are neither a fair nor a reasonable reflection of the evidence submitted.”
