Leicester City are watching the situation surrounding Everton quite closely
The Toffees breached Premier League’s profits and sustainability rules, causing MPs to consider suspending the penalty.
Leicestershire, relegated last season, are considering legal action for breaching Financial Fair Play rules, highlighting the importance of sustainability in football.
The cost of relegation is believed to be worth up to £100 million, which the Championship side will argue they are owed due to Everton’s breaking of the rules.
It has been reported that Leeds United and Burnley are also weighing up possible legal action against the Toffees as well.
What is the latest Everton situation involving Leicester City?
A motion to potentially discuss Everton’s penalty in Parliament has been put forward by MP Ian Byrne.
The West Derby MP has requested the “suspension of all proceedings and sanctions made by the Commission until the regulator makes its own determination,” via the Leicester Mercury.
The Premier League, including Everton and Manchester City, is facing potential sanctions from the British government due to the unjust points deduction imposed by a Premier League commission, highlighting the league’s ability to regulate itself.
What does this latest development in the Everton situation mean for Leicester City?
If the sanctions on Everton are suspended until an independent regulator runs the rule over the matter, then we could be waiting another long while before any decision is made over a possible points penalty.
However, the points deduction is frankly irrelevant to Leicester now as they’ve already gone down at the expense of the Merseyside club’s alleged financial breaches.
Leicester is looking to resolve a potential suspension against Everton, as they believe they have grounds for a case against the Toffees.
