The FA will take no action against Liverpool for an alleged hack into Manchester City’s scouting system.
The English FA has closed an investigation into Liverpool where it was alleged the Anfield outfit had hacked into Manchester City’s scouting database back in 2013.
According to AP, there were reports last year that the two clubs had agreed a £1m settlement over the issue although that payment came with no admission of wrongdoing from Liverpool. Don’t you always find the case when people are accused of something and they pay money to make it go away?
“The FA has carefully considered the evidence it received in this matter, including information provided by both clubs involved, and has decided not to progress the investigation,” the FA said in a statement on Friday.
“This is due to a number of factors including the age of the alleged concerns and the settlement agreed by the two clubs involved.”
Manchester City, meanwhile, are waiting to learn their Champions League fate as UEFA investigate them, once again, for breaching Financial Fair Play rules.
