Inter confirm they will only be allowed to have 22 players in the Champions League after failing to meet all their Financial Fair Play requirements.
UEFA today gave their verdicts on the various clubs under FFP parameters and released Roma from their settlement agreement for meeting all the conditions set.
Inter only met some of the conditions, so will continue to be monitored under the settlement agreement until at least June 2019.
A statement from the Nerazzurri confirms they’ll still only have 22 players in the A list for the Champions League this term rather than the usual 25.
They will also need to maintain a balance between the values of the players sold and bought.
The good news for Inter is that they did achieve the break even requirement and are unlikely to fall afoul of that rule in the near future.
The main problem is the wage bill, primarily due to expensive flops such as Joao Mario and Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa.
There are no fines, nor a transfer ban, but it seems as if Inter directors fully expected this development and had prepared for it.
