- Everton docked 10 points for breaching financial rules
- Steve Rotheram calls punishment ‘wholly disproportionate’
The mayor of Liverpool, Steve Rotheram, has described Everton’s 10-point deduction as “wholly disproportionate” and vowed to support the club’s appeal in a letter to the Premier League’s chief executive.
Everton were plunged into the relegation zone last week after being given the heaviest punishment ever handed to a Premier League team for breaching financial rules. An independent commission found the club lost £124.5m over the financial period covering four years to July 2022, £19.5m above the permitted threshold.
