United push for financial controls

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United will step up their campaign for greater financial controls in the Premier League later this week.

United are one of the prime movers in an effort to extend UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations throughout England's top flight. In a conference call to outline the Red Devils' first-quarter financial performance, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward revealed the matter was on the agenda of a meeting of Premier League clubs later this week.

He insisted the policy was not being driven by self-interest in terms of limiting the players rival clubs could buy, but the need to ensure vast amounts of money coming into the Premier League are not used for chronic overspending, as was the case at Portsmouth. "It is not trying to restrict teams from competing for players," said Woodward.
