Reports: UEFA reject Milan FFP plan

UEFA have rejected Milan’s proposal for a voluntary agreement on Financial Fair Play parameters, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport.

The Rossoneri had presented a plan showing the economic stability of the club going forward over the next few years, which they hoped would convince UEFA to hold off on sanctions.

Vincenzo Montella can have few complaints after being fired by Milan yesterday.
