UEFA Launches Investigation Into Barca For Potential Breach In Negreira Corruption Case

UEFA Launches Investigation Into Barca For Potential Breach

Aleksander Ceferin

Barcelona face a new challenge as UEFA, the governing body of football in Europe, has announced the opening of an investigation against the club for a potential breach of its rules in the Negreira corruption case.

The case involves millions of euros allegedly paid to a former referee and member of the committee of referees in exchange for reports on the arbitration.

While FC Barcelona has maintained that they only paid for legitimate services, Spanish authorities are investigating the possibility of additional advantages granted to the club.

Now, UEFA has appointed Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors to investigate the matter, citing Article 31(4) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations.

This news comes as a blow to the Catalan club, which is already under investigation by Spanish courts for possible corruption.

The Negreira affair has been a major source of controversy for FC Barcelona, and the investigation by UEFA only adds to their troubles.

The club will have to defend itself against potential sanctions from UEFA if found guilty of any wrongdoing.
