Martinez: Financial fair play will protect

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has dismissed the idea that clubs could benefit unfairly from UEFA’s financial fair play rules.

Martinez takes his side to Tottenham on Sunday lying fifth in the Premier League, and in a strong position to qualify for Europe.

He believes Everton are in a strong financial position to face the future after last month announcing a 1.6 million pound pre-tax profit for 2012-13.

Some clubs in the Premier League, though, are concerned that the new UEFA rules will allow the country’s richest sides to widen the gap between themselves and the rest.

Those rules compel clubs to limit losses for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons to a combined figure of 37 million pounds, with a ban from European competition the strongest possible sanction for breaking those rules.

But an argument against the new rules, designed to encourage clubs to get closer to spending only what they earn, is that they offer an advantage to those sides with a higher income.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho suggested at the beginning of last week that the new regulations might make it impossible for his club to compete with Manchester City, arguing that they have enjoyed the backing of multi-billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour.

But Martinez is adamant that the rules are there to protect clubs, and will not increase inequality.

He said: “I think financial fair play is about trying to control clubs who spend money that they haven’t really got.

“It’s very important that we don’t allow situations that have happened in the past, where a history of more than 100 years vanishes because of bad management at a club. Fair play maybe will stop that.

“Finances and new projects and people investing a lot of money, that’s beneficial and it helps competition.

“I don’t think anyone will get an unfair advantage. I think clubs will be protected from something you don’t want to see in football, which is people investing money that cannot then be repaid -- as you can then get hurt in the future.”

Martinez believes that careful stewardship of the club under the watch of chairman Bill Kenwright means that Everton are in a healthy state both on and off the pitch.

The manager stated just before the opening of the January transfer window that the club was financially strong enough to be able to resist any bids for England midfielder Ross Barkley.

He added: “Internally, we’re getting very, very strong, and we’re ready to build something special for the future.

“It’s not about when we’re going to do it; it’s about making sure that every day works in our favour.

“But financially, we’re in a very good position. The squad is as strong as it’s ever been, in terms of the combination of the senior figures with the younger players.

“So I’m really excited about the future. There are many reasons for us to work as hard as we can behind the scenes, as we always do, to make sure we’ve got a bright future.”
