Watford FC clarify situation regarding ongoing Toffees dispute

 Published on: 26th July 2018   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Watford FC

After ‘erroneous’ and ‘misleading’ reports concerning an ongoing  dispute with Everton, Watford FC has released a statement this morning.

It reads: “The club have made an official complaint to the Premier League over an allegation of an illegal approach to former manager, Marco Silva. 

“The complaint to the Premier League makes clear the seriousness of the allegation and what the club believes is overwhelming evidence of a clear breach of Premier League rules. 

“At the request of the Premier League we entered into mediation with Everton in a process that involved club officials and their respective legal teams, with no conclusion being reached. 

“Therefore the disciplinary process continues. In pursuing its disciplinary claim, the club has known from the outset it forfeited any right to compensation as a consequence of not following a proposed arbitration process. 

“We believe this situation is not about a compensation figure but the principle of making a stand when the actions of one Premier League club completely undermine and cause intrinsic damage to a fellow member club. 

“We trust in the Premier League to fully investigate the complaint and we will comply with that process. 

“The club will be making no further comment.
