But Spanish league president Javier Tebas said in a statement to The Associated Press that Al-Khelaifi’s “appointment must be rejected as it violates all reasonable rules of governance, not only because of the Financial Fair Play file, also because he is president of beIN Sport, one of main UEFA broadcast rights buyers.” PSG’s compliance with FFP rules is under fresh scrutiny by UEFA, with Tebas having long-standing concerns about the Qatar-owned club’s reliance on revenue from the Gulf state to comply with the break-even rules.
