Three English clubs – Burnley, Leeds and Leicester – have confirmed their intention to sue Everton for a total of £300 million. Senior figures from the three clubs have held talks to confirm plans to take legal action after the Premier League confirmed a 10-point deduction from Everton in the standings, a source has said.
Leeds and Leicester, who were relegated to the Championship last season, believe that Everton broke the league’s financial rules last season, so if they were deducted points in the last season, the Toffees would be relegated to the Championship. Burnley believes that Everton violated the rules the season before last, and therefore also demands financial compensation.
Let us remind you that today Everton were deducted 10 points in the Premier League standings for violating the league’s financial rules. Thus, Vitaly Mykolenko’s team has 4 points after 12 rounds and is in penultimate place in the standings.
