AC Milan chief Fassone hits out at UEFA over FFP rejection

AC Milan chief Marco Fassone has hit out at UEFA for rejecting their Financial Fair Play proposal.

Milan had their voluntary FFP payment offer rejected by UEFA last week.

"I think the decision was, with all due respect for those who made it, political in nature," insisted Fassone. “There is a new President of UEFA who considers sanctions to be the right path forward.

“The Voluntary Agreement is an idea introduced before he came along and nobody before us had even tried it before. A club like ours and a few others that made such big investments are probably not seen in a positive light.

“There will be sanctions for having burst the Financial Fair Play limitations over the last three years and we weren't even there at the time.

“This decision does leave a bitter taste in the mouth. It's a shame that the version put across in the media is that our plans were rejected, because that is not the case. Our plans do exist, they are clear and detailed."
