PSG has ‘nothing to hide’ in probe, says Nasser Al Khelaifi

Paris: Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi said on Wednesday the club had nothing to hide as UEFA investigate over alleged violations of its financial fair play rules.

Al Khelaifi, speaking at the official unveiling of French striker Kylian Mbappe, one of the players whose signing has sparked the probe, said PSG had respected all of UEFA's rules.

“We are very confident in our position and in our recruitment,” he said. “UEFA can do as it wishes, but we have done everything in a transparent way. We haven't hidden anything and we don't need to hide anything.”

PSG, owned by Qatar’s Oryx Qatar Sports Investments, broke the world transfer record to pay €222m for Brazilian Neymar in August before signing Mbappe on loan with an option to buy the 18-year-old from Monaco for up to €180m in the second largest deal in history.

The massive outlay sparked complaints from clubs in Spain and Germany that they were competing with a state-backed entity.

The La Liga President Javier Tebas said PSG were “laughing at the system”.

UEFA announced it was looking into whether PSG had broken the FFP rules that are designed to prevent clubs spending more than they earn.
