EPL: Excessive and not right – Carragher reacts to Everton’s 10-point deduction

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has slammed the 10-point deduction imposed on Everton by the Premier League.

Carragher, in a tweet, described it as “excessive and not right”.

He wrote: “The 10 point deduction for Everton is excessive & not right, considering they have been working with the PL about this for the last couple of years.
Would it have been better to be evasive & try & drag it out like other clubs?

“No doubt relegated clubs will have put big pressure on the PL to deal with Everton, but when you consider 6 clubs tried to leave the PL & there was no sanction at all it doesn’t feel right.

“Until other clubs are sanctioned Everton will feel they are being used to show there is no need for an independent regulator, and they are right.”

Kemi Filani reported that the Premier League has imposed a 10-point deduction on Everton.

The Goodison Park club has been investigated for a breach of profit and sustainability rules.

Everton insisted they are “shocked and disappointed” by the ruling and have vowed to appeal.

‘Both the harshness and severity of the sanction imposed by the Commission are neither a fair nor a reasonable reflection of the evidence submitted,’ said the club.

The deduction, which will be imposed with immediate effect, is the largest in the history of the Premier League and plunges Sean Dyche’s team into the relegation zone.

According to the Premier League, Everton admitted during a five-day hearing it was in breach of the league’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules with the Commission ‘determining Everton FC’s PSR Calculation for the relevant period resulted in a loss of £124.5million, as contended by the Premier League, which exceeded the threshold of £105million permitted under the PSRs.’
