PARIS (AP) - Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc says potential UEFA sanctions for the Qatar-owned club’s big spending would make it tough to select Champions League squads next season.

French daily L’Equipe reported Tuesday that UEFA plans to fine PSG 60 million euros ($83.6 million), and cut the usual quota of senior players for its Champions League squad from 25 to 21 - including four club-trained players - as punishment for breaching its Financial Fair Play rules. Blanc says such a punishment would mean PSG “won’t be able to do everything it wants.” UEFA should announce sanctions within days against nine clubs which broke rules designed to control spending on transfers and wages.

PSG and Manchester City face most scrutiny due to sponsorship deals with their owners from Qatar and Abu Dhabi, respectively.
