Money is destroying Europe’s top leagues – Wenger

Posted on Feb 3 2018 - 10:22pm by admin

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has warned that financial imbalance among football clubs is “destroying competition” around Europe.

Addressing the media on Friday, Wenger said it was clear that “something is not right in our game”, with four of Europe’s top five domestic leagues practically decided halfway through the season.

Manchester City have an 18-point lead in England, while Bayern Munich are 16 points clear in the Bundesliga.

Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain enjoy 11-point gaps in Spain and France respectively.

“When you look at the five big leagues in Europe, you can see that the unpredictability of the competition has gone down.

“In December, we already knew four champions of five leagues, so it means something is not right in our game. The huge financial power of some clubs is destroying the competition,” Wenger said.
