Foreign EPL owners looking to end relegation
A senior English football executive says some of the Premier
League’s foreign owners want to abolish the relegation and
League Managers’ Association chief executive Richard Bevan says
”you’ll find that … American owners and some of the Asian
owners” want to abolish relegation.
Half of the Premier League’s 20 top clubs are under foreign
ownership. Changing league rules requires 14 clubs to back a
Arsenal, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Manchester United and
Sunderland are owned by Americans.
Bevan says ”American owners, without doubt, there have been a
number of them looking at having more of a franchise situation and
that would mean no promotion or relegation.”
