PSG scores legal win over UEFA in financial monitoring case


LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Paris Saint-Germain has won an initial legal battle with UEFA over the monitoring of its spending on player transfers and wages.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says it has upheld PSG’s appeal against an attempt by UEFA investigators to reopen a previously closed investigation.

The judgment in favor of PSG is separate from another UEFA investigation of its finances in the 2017-18 season when the Qatari-owned French champions signed Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

The appeal judgment related to UEFA’s club finance monitoring panel wanting to review a decision that declared PSG’s accounts through June 2017 compliant with “Financial Fair Play” rules.

The court says UEFA missed its deadline to challenge the previous decision.
