Arsene Wenger has said that whilst he still believes the Financial Fair Play Rules are required, he has less faith they will be implemented properly compared to a year ago.

Speaking to the Telegraph Wenger pointed towards the civil case on going between UEFA and FC Sion following their exclusion from European matches, and said a mass of such actions could discourage UEFA from implementing the rules as agreed on.

‘I am less optimistic about that than I was a year ago, when it comes in, it depends on with what kind of rules. UEFA has been challenged by the Sion case when they excluded them and it looks like they are scared they could be challenged by the big clubs if they bring it in by force. I am not sure they will be capable of imposing it. I am hoping they are because I am a big fan of it, but I am less convinced than a year ago.’
