LONDON - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has accused Chelsea of hypocrisy after signing up to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules and then spending an astonishing 75 million pounds on the final day of the January transfer window.
“Chelsea supported the financial fair play, but in the morning they announce a 70 million pound loss and in the afternoon buy 75 million pounds worth of players,” the Telegraph quoted Wenger, as saying of the Premier League champions’ latest round of spending.
He added: “Where’s the logic in that? It’s hard to guess. Officially they vote for the financial fair play, so they can explain much better than I why they do it.”
Chelsea insist they can still comply with the new UEFA regulations, soon to be in force, despite their remarkable return into the transfer market. (ANI)
