Foxes of Leicester’s opinion on Leicester City situation
To be frank, the whole case stinks of desperation – understandable given the financial gap between the two divisions. But a reliance on Everton even being found guilty, let alone rushing a verdict, shows just how quickly the clubs are willing to point their fingers rather than acknowledge their own failings.
Leicester City aren’t 19th because Everton possibly breached FFP, they are there because of their own mismanagement. They can only blame themselves. The club wouldn’t be where they are if they had recruited smartly over the last 24 months, or if they hadn’t been so reluctant to sack Brendan Rodgers.
Perhaps the most embarrassing aspect of this – from a Leicester view – is even if the case is fast-tracked and Everton are found guilty, a points deduction would still see the Foxes relegated as they would only climb to 18th in the table.
The darkest part of this whole situation is what the £300m compensation could do to EFC. If they are fined by the Premier League, Everton would be pushed into a dangerous financial position. If they were then ordered to pay £300m compensation, it would surely put the club into administration and could see them liquidated.
