Ranieri: Monaco rightful champions

Monaco Coach Claudio Ranieri has attacked PSG’s Ligue 1 title win, insisting they have not achieved it in a fair manner.

The Italian tactician’s side will finish as runners-up in France’s top flight this season but he believes that, based on the grounds of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules, the Rouges et Blancs are the rightful champions.

“My two seasons in the Principality have been very good,” Ranieri is quoted as saying on Calcio News 24.

“I have a very good relationship with the players, I talk to them every day.

“Transfer rumours? Like everyone, players read the newspapers too. But when there are official decisions made I will be the first to communicate them.

“The rules should always be respected. UEFA have just clearly said that PSG have won without abiding by Financial Fair Play.

“Therefore, we are the rightful champions, having respected the rules imposed at the start of the season.

“My future? The next week could be decisive.”
