The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) has stood up for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and strongly criticised the “insulting words” of La Liga president, Javier Tebas; towards the Ligue 1 club and Neymar.
A vocal critic of PSG and their world-record €222 million Neymar from Barcelona, ever since the transfer was first mooted, Tebas’ latest outburst saw him claim the pair were “peeing in the bed or the swimming pool,” and making a mockery of financial fair play.
“The LFP strongly condemns this comments today by the Liga president; Javier Tebas, regarding Paris Saint-Germain-Neymar transfer.
“These words are not worthy of an institution as respectable and effective as the Spanish league.” an LFP statement read.
“The LFP points out that, only UEFA is able to measure the respect of financial fair play rules by PSG”.
UEFA confirmed earlier this week it has launched a formal investigation into PSG’s transfer dealings to determine whether or not the club has breached FFP rules with their purchase of Neymar and the arrival of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco on a season-long loan with an option to buy next summer.
