Video: Man United fined £257,000 for breaking Financial Fair Play rules. Financial Fair Play has become the bane of football clubs across Europe, with Man United the latest to fall foul of its rules.
However, the Red Devils can consider themselves a touch unlucky because their very modest violation relates to the earlier versions of the FFP regulations, before they were altered in response to the Covid epidemic.
United had a small break-even loss, according to a report on the official UEFA website, which resulted in a €300,000/£257,000 fine.
They were by no means the only team to break the regulations; FC Barcelona, Konyaspor, APOEL FC, Riga FC, NK Olimpija Ljubljana, K Slovan Bratislava, RSC Anderlecht, and Istanbul Başakşehir FK were all penalised for various infractions and received fines ranging in size.
