English Premier League (EPL) side Everton have been docked 10 points for breaching financial regulations, dropping them into the relegation zone overnight.
“Everton have been docked 10 points for breaching the Profitability and Sustainability Regulations (PSR),” the EPL secretariat announced on Sunday (local time).토토사이트
Everton, who had four wins, two draws, six losses, and 14 points in the regular season, was deducted 10 points, leaving them with four points. In an instant, the club plummeted to 19th place in the relegation zone (18th-20th).
The EPL office announced earlier this year that Everton had breached the PSR for the 2021-22 season. At a hearing on May 5, it was revealed that Everton lost £124.5 million in the 2021-22 season. This exceeded the PSR threshold of £150 million.
Everton, who were slapped with a 10-point deduction, immediately fired back. “We find the decision of the EPL Secretariat difficult to understand,” Everton said in a statement, adding that “the evidence submitted by the club was not fairly reflected. We are shocked and disappointed.”
