Leeds owner threatens breakaway Premier League amid TV money anger



Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has hit out at the level of TV money that Championship teams receive.
Leeds received just £7million in television income in 2017 despite the fact they pull in more viewership than a lot of the Premier League clubs, who receive a minimum of £100m-a-year.
?We should concede that a club like Leeds United is watched by 500,000 to 600,000 people live on Sky, but getting only £2.5 million (of their TV deal with clubs),” Radrizzani claimed.
?We are actually penalised because we are on TV more than 20 times, so maybe we should reconsider the system because it doesn?t work.
?We are creating a show that is high interest for everyone, yet we lose money.
?I think other chairmen would love to open a discussion because the time is getting ready to consider what to do to move forward. “It?s just my belief, you should ask other clubs. But I?m sharing these (ideas) with other chairmen, and they agree.
?The Championship model should be reconsidered because it is not sustainable ? there are huge gaps between the clubs coming down with parachute payments and other teams on lower budgets.
?Maybe they need to consider another way to create value, Premier League 2 or something, that is sustainable even for the clubs who are not promoted.?
