Three teams reprieved over financial fair-play

Paris - Hull City, Panathinaikos and Sporting Lisbon were rewarded on Monday for getting their finances in order by UEFA's financial control body.

All three had been under scrutiny for not complying with UEFA's financial fair-play rules.

But on Monday they exited the Financial Control Body's (CFCB) settlement regime after fulfilling the terms of their agreement.

However, Turkey's Galatasaray failed to comply with their break-even requirement during the monitoring period and have been referred to UEFA's CFCB adjudicatory chamber to make a decision on whether disciplinary measures should be taken.

Four other teams, Hapoel Tel-Aviv (Israel), Ruch Chorzow (Poland), Rostov (Russia) and Kardemir Karabukspor (Turkey) are continuing to be monitored.
