The Premier League has slapped Everton with a historic 10-point deduction following an investigation into a breach of profit and sustainability rules. The Goodison Park club has expressed their dismay at the punishment and promptly declared their intention to appeal the decision.
An official statement released by the club conveyed Everton’s strong reaction: “Both the harshness and severity of the sanction imposed by the Commission are neither a fair nor a reasonable reflection of the evidence submitted.”
This 10-point deduction marks the most substantial penalty ever imposed in the history of the Premier League and takes immediate effect. The severe consequence has plunged Sean Dyche’s team into the relegation zone, intensifying the impact of the disciplinary action.
The Premier League’s investigation into Everton’s financial dealings has evidently uncovered violations of profit and sustainability rules, prompting the league to take unprecedented measures. The club, however, remains resolute in its stance, asserting that the severity of the punishment does not align with the evidence presented.
