ADL: 'Check Inter, Milan, Roma books'

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis warned “nobody is checking the books” as Milan, Inter, Fiorentina and Roma spend big.

The patron has always been very careful to balance the budget at the Stadio San Paolo, having taken over the club in Serie C following bankruptcy a decade ago.

“I am happy that important clubs like Milan, Inter, Fiorentina and Roma are strengthening their squads, but there is a problem,” De Laurentiis told the Corriere dello Sport.

“Nobody is checking the books at the Federation and Carlo Tavecchio is responsible for that, as his predecessor was in the past.

“Tavecchio told me there are three, at most six, Serie A clubs who have balanced books. In Serie B it’s a disaster. This is a bad way to progress.

“Michel Platini’s Financial Fair Play is uneven, didn’t last long and is fairly malleable anyway.”
