Dutch club FC Twente docked 3 points for financial problems

Jesus Corona continues to thrive playing in Dutch football.
A points deduction for financial woes dropped Twente to 11th in the top-flight Eredivisie.

AMSTERDAM -- The Dutch football association has docked former league champion FC Twente three points for the second time this year for failing to meet targets set for their financial recovery.

The points deduction on Friday dropped Twente one position to 11th in the top-flight Eredivisie. The club were initially docked three points in early March.

Under Royal Dutch Football Association rules, Twente can have points deducted one more time for failing to meet financial recovery targets and if they still fail to meet the targets the club risk losing their professional license.

Twente official Gerald van den Belt says the club are paying the price for an "overambitious" plan submitted to the Dutch association in 2014. The club recently submitted a revised plan.
