UEFA to ‘adapt’ FFP for future

UEFA is considering adapting its Financial Fair Play regulations, president Aleksander Ceferin said Tuesday, as Manchester City take their fight to overturn a ban from the Champions League for breaching the rules to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

"It is too early to say how it will look in the future but we are thinking about it and we will probably have to adapt it," the Slovenian Ceferin said at a press conference after the UEFA Congress.

"It was very successful as a system, there are almost no losses in European football any more, but now we will probably have to adapt to different times."

However, the last decade has seen City and PSG in particular, with mega-rich owners from Abu Dhabi and Qatar respectively, present a huge new challenge to Europe's established elite and to the FFP rules themselves.

City were banned from Europe for two years for serious breaches of FFP regulations. The reigning English champions last week filed an appeal to CAS.

Asked if he was confident the ruling against City could be upheld in the CAS appeal, Ceferin said: "As a lawyer I respect the system and the system we have -- the investigatory chamber, the adjudicatory chamber, and at the end we have the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.City appealed to the CAS. Let's wait for the decision."

Meanwhile, General Secretary Theodore Theodoridis played down concerns that of UEFA staff could be under threat when City host Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16, second leg on March 17.
