Jurgen Klopp calls for UEFA to punish Manchester City if guilty of breaching FFP rules

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called for UEFA to take action against clubs found guilty of breaching FFP rules.

A report last week from Der Spiegel has suggested that both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have broken FFP rules.

The German coach claims UEFA’s rulings are “very good” but punishments must be implemented when broken by clubs.

Klopp: “I think FFP is a really good”

Speaking during his Friday press conference, Klopp offered his view on the story relating to Manchester City reportedly breaching FFP rules.

Although he was reluctant to comment, he admitted that the clubs in question should be penalised.

Currently, the European football governing body are unable to investigate the Premier League champions due to insufficient evidence.

Klopp said:

“It is really difficult to comment but what I can say in general is that FFP is a really good thing.

“But we always thought that, if it is in place, they have to do something with it. I have no clue what happens.

“I know it is about Paris and Man City. I’m not sure if other clubs are being talked about.

“I think FFP is a really good thing because it sets the rules.

“If everything is fine, then everything is fine. If not, then somebody should do something.

“That’s all I can say but I have no clue about the real story.”
