Good article. There's something similar in The Times which has been posted on City's website today. The choice United, Arsenal, liverpool and Spurs are putting forward is to penalise clubs whose owners are putting money into football to allow their owners (all overseas based) to take more money out of the game. Platini may have been duped into accepting FFP as a good thing but surely the Premier League clubs can see that more money flowing through the game is a better long term prospect than simply seeing money flowing out into the owners' overseas bank accounts and into astronomical interest payments.to prop up borrowings. So who is really ruining football? Sheik Mansour and Abramowic who have invested millions of actual cash or the Glazers, Kroenke, Fenway (and the previous American owners of LIverpool) and Enic who have sucked millions out in dividends and debt interest? City have had some dodgy owners in the past hell bent on sucking money out of the club and the game itself, Sheik Mansour is the opposite of that and should be lauded throughout football for his cash investment not pilloried to make a smoke screen for the self interests of greedy executives purporting to represent the best interests of the game but are really only interested in their own bank accounts.
