Gazidis is eager for UEFA’s financial fair play rule

Arsenal’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis thinks that the financial fair play law that UEFA is going to impose in football will be a great rule because it will attract more potential owners towards the Premier League. Gazidis fears that powerful owners like those of PSG, Manchester City or Malaga are chasing away other potential owners.

“We are at a point now where we are seeing transfer fees and players’ salaries continue to go up and we’re seeing fewer and fewer potential owners able to own a Premier League team. The pool is so small you’re looking around the world for a handful of individuals to be a benefactor for these clubs.”
