Nyon - Liverpool have satisfied UEFA's new financial fair-play regulations but European football's governing body fined four other clubs including Hull City on Friday.

While Hapoel Tel-Aviv, Greek giants Panathinaikos of Greece, Hull and Ruch Chorzow of Poland were all fined €200 000 for breaching rules layed down by UEFA, Sparta Prague and Liverpool were both cleared.

All clubs competing in European football competition must limit losses to €40 million over two seasons or face financial sanctions.

"These agreements are aimed at ensuring each club achieves break-even compliance with minimal delay," UEFA said.

"Sparta Prague and Liverpool FC have been found to have satisfied the break-even requirement and are no longer under investigation," the statement added.

Last season Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City were both hit with fines and European squad size restrictions and City are due for a UEFA visit next week.

Investigations into Monaco, Inter Milan, Sporting Lisbon and Roma are also to continue.
