Milan risk UEFA ban

Milan will learn their Financial Fair Play fate tomorrow, and there’s a real risk they’ll be thrown out of the Europa League.

The Rossoneri have been denied both a voluntary agreement and a settlement agreement, so will be sanctioned by UEFA.

As well as losses in recent years, European football’s governing body has doubts about owner Yonghong Li.

At a meeting in Nyon yesterday, executives tried to make the case that the owner and the club should be considered separately, but there are still fears they’ll be denied entry to Europe.

Sky Italia reports that a verdict will be handed down tomorrow morning or early in the afternoon, and if the Diavolo are thrown out of the Europa League they’ll appear to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Fiorentina will be on standby though, as they’d replace the Rossoneri if the court upholds UEFA’s verdict.

There have even been rumours in recent hours that Milan could be given a two-year ban, but Sky says both the club and UEFA have denied that.
