Borussia Dortmund’s outspoken CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has an idea or two regarding how UEFA could make competition among clubs in Europe as fair as possible, plus, he is 100% certain which is NOT the solution.
I don’t know. But that’s UEFA’s job and they could hire highly-qualified lawyers for it. But what you should not do: Fine them. It’s the biggest nonsense ever to impose a fine on Paris. They laugh at it in Qatar
Watzke told T-Online, talking about measures UEFA could take to limit the money spent by certain clubs on transfer fees, numbers that make the Financial fair Play rules look like meaningless lines on a paper.
Deduct points. The world would look different then. But that’s UEFA’s business
the Dortmund CEO then said, when asked what could UEFA do to really make clubs like Paris Saint-Germain feel the pinch.
You could tell clubs they can only get so and so much money from their main sponsor or owner. But look at Qatar for instance. They can activate one of their many industry shares they hold. And in case of doubt all of them become sponsors at Paris. They’d still collect over €100m
Watzke also said, adding
That’s why I don’t think a political regulation is feasible. But in spite of that it’s important that UEFA tries to create regulations which are so tight that it’s at least no longer that easy to bypass them.
