Exclusive: Chelsea ‘within their rights’ to push Financial Fair Play rules, Glenn Hoddle says

Glenn Hoddle has defended Chelsea’s transfer policy amid claims they have pushed football’s Financial Fair Play rules to the limit.

The decision to splash over £300 million on new players has been labelled as controversial by rivals.

“If they’re not breaking the law and there’s a little window of opportunity to get around it - and they’re within their rights to do it - then clubs will do it,” Hoddle told The Independent of Chelsea’s spending.

“It’s up to the industries, Uefa, Fifa, they’ve got to come up with rules that will be sound.”
