“I find all this very troubling.”

Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham has hinted that the Premier League has been engaging in some strange behaviour since they hit Everton with a points deduction.

­

Everton were deducted 10 points after they were found to have broken the league’s profit and sustainability rules, spending £19.5m over the allowed limit across four seasons between 2018 and 2022.

This s the heaviest points deduction ever handed out by the Premier League and it leaves the toffees currently battling it out in the relegation zone and fighting for survival.

 

Everton feel even more aggrieved by the hefty punishment considering that Man City currently have 115 different financial cases against them, but have yet to see any consequences for them.

What makes things stranger is that Burnham did an interview with Sky Sports, where he called on the Premier League to drop the 10 point fine, but the interview in question was pulled and never aired.

The mayor then posted from his own account suggesting that something “strange” is going on with the Premier League.

 

“Something strange is definitely going on behind-the-scenes with the Everton story.

“Others have been in touch to say interviews they’ve given were not broadcast PL had to correct a misleading response to my letter given to journalists on Sunday pm.”
