There have been many teams that have been able to pursue compensation through the Premier League after Everton was punished, according to the Guardian. The Merseyside club have been deducted 10 points for violating financial fair play laws.
An independent EPL committee has found Everton’s desire to improve their on-field performance in an “irresponsible” manner and exceeded the loss allowed under Premier League financial rules.
The British press reported that the Premier League announced the committee’s ruling in May, allowing the five clubs 28 days from last Friday to pursue compensation claims. Those clubs are said to be Southampton, Leeds United, Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Burnley.
Leeds, Leicester, Burnley and Southampton, who have been relegated in recent seasons, have agreed that they will jointly apply for compensation through the Premier League if Everton are found to have breached FFP rules.
The point deduction leaves Everton down to 19th place in the table and leaves a big question mark over whether the sale of the club by current owner Farhad Moshiri to an American investment company, 777 Partners, will be successful. proceed further or not.
