£100,000 a Week!
With Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City looking the most likely to fall into foreign ownership and join the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Aston Villa, and Liverpool who already have, our owner has some words of wisdom for any potential buyers.
Mohammed Al Fayed is apparently baffled by the unmitigated rush to buy a Premiership club, indeed, it`s almost as if owning a Premiership club has become something akin to a fashion statement, therefore any potential buyers may like to heed his words,
"Until now every month I have to open my pocket and give £1 million or £2 million. If you want to win you have to pay up to £100,000 a week. It is crazy."
Clearly food for thought!
