Vincent Kompany insists he’s not paying attention to the ongoing controversy over Everton’s points deduction.
Following the announcement of their appeal ruling, the Toffees were given four points back earlier this week.

Sean Dyche’s team was initially penalized with a 10-point deduction in November for violating Premier League profitability and sustainability standards.

The club filed an appeal against the judgment, which was heard early this month. An appeals board ruled that Everton’s punishment should be lowered from ten to six points, effective immediately.

Everton has surpassed both Nottingham Forest and Brentford, leaving Burnley with an 11-point margin to safety.

The Toffees are not out of the woods, however, as they face a second charge following the publishing of their 2022/23 financial statements in January. Nottingham Forest has also been found to have violated the profitability and sustainability standards.’

Now that their appeal has been heard, the hearing for Everton’s second charge will begin, with a ruling expected before the end of the 2023/24 season.

While potential further points deductions could benefit Burnley, Kompany maintains he is not concerned with issues outside of Turf Moor.

“I don’t have the pretention to chip in with this debate, for me my only focus is Burnley Football Club and this weekend,” he told the BBC.

“I don’t want to offer a typical response where I just brush things off, but in truth, I don’t care. I only care about my team and what they do.

“That’s the only thing I want to concern myself with.”
