Everton have released an official statement in the wake of the Premier League’s charges against the Merseyside club over alleged Financial Fair Play breaches.

After a 10 month long investigation, the club are accused of breaching the league’s Profit and Sustainability rules during the financial period ending with the 2021/22 season.

The club, however, shared that they “strongly contests the allegations” in a statement on Friday.

“Everton Football Club is disappointed to hear of the Premier League’s decision to refer an allegation of a breach of Profit & Sustainability regulations to an independent commission for review.

“The Club strongly contests the allegation of non-compliance and together with its independent team of experts is entirely confident that it remains compliant with all financial rules and regulations.

“Everton is prepared to robustly defend its position to the commission. The Club has, over several years, provided information to the Premier League in an open and transparent manner and has consciously chosen to act with the utmost good faith at all times.

“The Club will not be making any further comment at this time.”

Back on the pitch, the Toffees continue their hunt for Premier League survival in a showdown with Tottenham when club football returns next weekend.
