Galatarasay banned by UEFA

Turkish giants Galatarasay have been debarred from both UEFA Champions League and Europa League for one season, claims Goal.com. The decision by the UEFA authorities will be eminent after the club failed to conform the financial regulations set by the UEFA. This means that the club will not be able to feature in any of the UEFA competitions, for one season, within 2019. It has also been confirmed that the ban will be lifted if the club does not qualify in the upcoming two seasons.

Earlier this year, the European body exposed that the Istanbul club had failed to obey the rules concerning the financial losses. The Adjudicatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body has released a statement explaining everything to know about the ban.

“Galatasaray will be excluded from participating in the next Uefa club competition for which they would otherwise qualify in the next two (2) seasons (i.e. the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons).” The statement released by the UEFA body read.

The body has also slapped the Turkish club with a note to lower their employee benefit expenses of all its players in the upcoming two seasons.

“The Turkish club has also been ordered to limit the overall aggregate cost of the employee benefits expenses of all of its players in each of the next two reporting periods (i.e. the reporting period ending in 2016 and the reporting period ending in 2017).”

The new restrictions have come as another misery for Galatarasay as the club are currently lingering in an unusual fifth position in the Turkish League. The club finished as champions last season and it is quite unlikely for such to happen this term, provided they are sixteen points adrift of the top of the League table.
