Roma meet with UEFA regarding Financial Fair Play


(RomaPress.us): Roma directors Umberto Gandini and Mauro Baldissoni will fly to Switzerland today to meet with UEFA.

On the table, there is the discussion between the sides regarding Roma’s Financial Fair Play standing as UEFA want Roma to explain why their budget was not balanced for the financial year in 30 June, 2017. The explanation for Roma is simple — missing out on the Champions League group stage led to a financial loss. Despite the imbalance, the Giallorossi will be able to provide a strong case to UEFA — the “plusvalenza” of Paredes, Rüdiger, and Emerson coupled with the qualification to the knockout stages of this year’s competition give Roma a strong case. The club remain confident, however, it will be some time before UEFA makes an announcement on the FFP standing of the club.
