Championship club Aston Villa are facing a possible points deduction, the side, who are managed by Steve Bruce, are to face charges for breaking a spending cap.
The Times state that it could lead to the side being docked 12 points next season, if they fail to gain promotion.
It read: “Villa have posted an aggregate loss of £37.1 million during their two seasons in the second tier, giving them very little room to comply with rules that permit losses of £39 million over a three-year period before submitting their next results to the EFL in March.”
Villa’s parachute payments this season has been reduced from £33 million to £15 million could leave the West Midlands club on the brink.
If the breach is more than £15 million over three years then under new EFL guidelines Villa could face the points deduction in the 2019-20 season.
The report has left Villa fans on social media worried, it’s no wonder they want a new manager if promotion is badly needed this season – check out what they are saying on the next page.
