Leicester have paid the English Football League £3.1million to settle a Financial Fair Play dispute according to Press Association Sport.

The Foxes were deemed to have breached the EFL’s Championship FFP Rules during the 2013-14 season.

But the EFL said, in a statement released on Wednesday, that Leicester “did not make any deliberate attempt to infringe the rules or to deceive,” with the dispute arising from the rules being interpreted differently.

Leicester won the Championship title in the 2013-14 season as Nigel Pearson’s side totalled 102 points from 46 games.

Proceedings in the FFP case were stayed pending the outcome of a legal challenge by Queens Park Rangers against those rules.

The challenge from QPR – who finished fourth that season before earning promotion through the play-offs – is still ongoing. An EFL statement said:

“In reaching a settlement, the EFL acknowledges that the club did not make any deliberate attempt to infringe the rules or to deceive and that the dispute arose out of genuine differences of interpretation of the rules between the parties. All relevant matters were taken into account when determining the quantum of the settlement.

“The agreed settlement of £3,100,000 is in full and final settlement of all and any claims by the EFL against the club and its officers, in respect of the FFP Regulations for season 2013/14.

“No further details with regards to the settlement will be released.”

    If Aubangaman isnt eligible to play for the arse in the ropey, how is it Sanchez is eligible to play for manure?

      Cos Sanchez is now playing in the CL, a different comp to his earlier exploits.
      Bangaman played Ropey before he joined the scum.

      Because you can go from a crap team to a crapper team but not from a good team to a crap team, it’s in the regs.

        That makes sense, didn’t think Owen was just that bad.

        • Tom Sherwood February 21, 2018 at 8:29 pm

          Still, a slight improvement on Carraghaghagherrr though !

    Blagged on interpretation, smoothed over with a lump of cash. Boom.

    • Caspurs♿️ February 21, 2018 at 8:16 pm

      When it comes to smoothing things out, I like to use my trusty spatula.

        I know mate, I’ve seen your plastering.

  • Spursmyarse February 21, 2018 at 8:11 pm

    I believe that Arse will do what Utd did last year, win the Ropey and get CL Football. Think about it, long and hard.

      They have to put all their oafs in one basket.

      Playing through the man flu, he’ll really be up for it knowing Mourinho doesn’t trust him !

    Lukaku scored for fun at Everton, almost gave Kaneinho a run for his money, now he looks disinterested, overweight and a yard short.

  • Tom Sherwood February 21, 2018 at 7:56 pm

    Nice to see full transparency on the matter, pity the FA weren’t as open as the EFL.

  • richspurs February 21, 2018 at 7:53 pm

    Slow news day? How about some stadium updates.?

  • Sexy Beast February 21, 2018 at 7:41 pm

    Srip them of the title and er give it to the team that er er finished third would be fair in my book no?
