My thoughts on this, I think Tebas is spot on. His motivations for saying this might be questionable, I've heard stories of Real Madrid being funded by the state or governor or something, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a point. Truth is Chelsea, City and PSG should never have been allowed to operate like they did.
People say football is a business but no business would allow damaging influences to fester within it in the name of business. Football(and other sports too) is unique and business can't be just business in all aspects and angles.
I would estimate the sheikhs have spent over 10 times the initial net value of MCFC when they bought the club. If that was a business then the competition would be finished and unable to keep pace.
Its therefore amazing that some clubs are managing to keep up while doing things the right way, but still, City have swept the domestic trophies and won the league twice in a row now, so its the same as a business to a decent extent.
The competition is struggling badly and having to play outta their skin to keep up. Liverpool running City close this season is a bit deceitful and masking the massive gap. Credit to Liverpool of course but last season was a more accurate reflection of where the league is at.
As if that wasn't enough they have also needed to cheat and make a mockery of the rules, rules that were to intended to control the damage they would inevitably cause, give them a smooth entry and avoid a shock effect caused by the influx of oil money.
FFP should have been their darling as it would have quietened the dissenting voices, but they went and spat in it's face. FFP would not have stopped City anyway, should have just respected it.
I don't think anyone wants to see a team kicked out of any competition or a points deduction, so they shouldn't be worried about that happening. They are now well established and decent revenue, which we hope is entirely legitimate, so they should be able to follow the rules going forward. Oil money is still dangerous.
As for Liverpool, we need and can easily afford to spend upwards of 100m this summer in order to continue to challenge. Obviously a CL win would be huge. Tough game against a very deserving Spurs side but too bad they are facing us, otherwise I would have backed them. Hope we smash them.
Follow that up with a league win(still not likely I know, and getting ahead of myself) but we would be more than keeping pace with doped up City while doing things in an organic manner.
Credit to Klopp and all the staff at Liverpool and roll on the beautiful game. Regardless of what happens I can see us challenging for the league again.
