Official: AC Milan issue comment after receiving fine from UEFA for FPP breaches

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have released a comment regarding UEFA’s ruling from earlier today, which confirmed breaches of the FPP rules. A fine has been handed to the club but it’s not all negative, as the club explains. 

The Chamber of the Club Financial Control Body, also known as the CFCB, confirmed earlier today that Milan have been given a €2m fine plus a €13m suspended fine. Several other clubs who participated in UEFA competitions last season have also been punished due to FFP breaches.

Addressing the media outlets directly, including SempreMilan, Milan commented on the decision and made it clear that they are on the right path from a financial point of view. In fact, the Rossoneri have made tremendous improvement over the last few years.

“The decision of the Club Financial Control Body testifies to the validity of the strategic vision that guides the work of our club. We will continue with confidence on the virtuous path towards financial sustainability, in line with the indications of FFP, committing ourselves with discipline and perseverance to achieve the perfect balance and synergy between sporting and financial results: a goal that the whole world of football should continue to pursue,” the comment read.

The fine, in other words, was inevitable but it should not be considered a receipt for poor development at the club. Had Milan not improved the way they have lately, then a fine would have been the least of their worries.

  1. FFP makes no sense … So barca can have a debt, bully players and sell off its future earnings … But they are fine yet clubs who cut costs are punished I don’t get it.

    1. Just because FFP doesn’t factor in clubs making absolutely catastrophic decisions over their futures like Barca doesn’t mean it’s worthless. Hopefully they tighten the rules further to address lunatic cases like that in future, they have no ‘levers’ to pull next time having sold off all the family silver in pursuit of short-term gains.

  2. I honestly don`t understand this FFP bullshit. Please explain why Milan are being fined and not teams like PSG, City and Barcelona. What am I missing here?

  3. Wait what? What FFP have we broken? We haven’t spent ANY real money in the past 3 Summers. Yet Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea, and Juve keep spending even more than us and walk away free? Chelsea have spent 250M this summer..we have spent just under 55M.
    FFP is such a joke

    1. For the hundredth time, Milan LOST 300M over the last two years. It’s not what you spend, it’s what you earn minus what you spend. What is so F’ing hard for you to understand about that

  4. How can they give a fine to a club that is struggling financial. It is not that they bought expensive players. How can clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man City and PSG avoid fines?

    1. Real Madrid have made millions from player sales and invest wisely. Guys like Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Valverde were cheap. Even Camavinga seems a bargain. The other clubs have been fined more than Milan. The problem for Milan remains they don’t take in revenue from player sales, which makes some of the salaries even more perplexing.

  5. All it takes is for certain clubs to give kickbacks to certain individuals and FFP looks the other way.

    All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.

    Catch my drift?
