Roma back UEFA investigation after accusations of Financial Fair Play breach

Italian giants Roma back UEFA's investigation into them and six other clubs for a breach of financial fair play rules.

Italian giants Roma have welcomed UEFA's investigation into their transfer activities after a suspected breach of Financial Fair Play rules.

The European governing body announced on Thursday that they are to investigate seven clubs over a potential breaking of the rules.

"We support UEFA's efforts through Financial Fair Play to ensure financial stability in football, it is very much in line with our strategy and actions," the club said in a statement.

"Our current ownership took over a club in economic distress just three years ago and were very clear from the outset that our club would be run as a business in order to maximize economic success along with on-field performance.

"We are very proud of the economic and competitive accomplishments achieved in a very short time and are even more optimistic about our future. We look forward to a dialogue with UEFA and are confident they will recognize our accomplishments and consider us a model for future investment in European football."

Liverpool are one of six other clubs under the spotlight, with Monaco, Besiktas, Inter Milan, Krasnodar, and Sporting Lisbon also in line to be investigated.
