Waterford FC owner Lee Power claims the club have been ‘totally misled by the FAI’.
He’s released a statement criticising the association following a UEFA decision not to grant Waterford a license to play in next season’s Europa League.
A club must be in existence for three-years old to compete in Europe, but the Blues’ management company wasn’t formed until late 2016.
Power’s warned that the decision will have a serious financial impact on the future of Waterford FC and claims the club were given assurances by the FAI throughout a five-month process.
He’s called for an investigation into the FAI’s handling of the affair and confirmed that Waterford will appeal UEFA’s decision.
