Liverpool “could endure points deduction” over Dempsey saga
Fulham are proceeding with their complaint to the Premier League over the actions of Liverpool in their persuit for attacker Clint Dempsey this summer.
Although the Reds missed out on signing the American international, with Dempsey signing for Tottenham, Fulham are unhappy with the way the club approached the 29-year-old.
Fulham refer to comments made by Brendan Rodgers on the official Liverpool FC website in July relating to their interest in Dempsey.
In addition, a statement appeared on NESN, the club’s owners website, that a deal had been reached for Dempsey’s signature. An apology was later released.
The Telegraph report today of the possible consequences of Liverpool’s actions:
Evidence is still being assembled in the case, but Liverpool could be fined or hit with a suspended points deduction if they are unable to defend themselves against the charge.
Liverpool intend to fight the allegations.
