The Premier League has proven to be a huge money spinner for a host of English clubs and the owners most certainly look to take advantage of the ridiculous amounts being bandied about in the English game today.
United (the Glazer family) and Arsenal (majority owner Stan Kroenke) are arguably the two sides who have managed to profit the most from the huge influx of cash and now former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has gone on to criticise the American owners of the two giants for being more concerned with finances rather than trophies in recent times.
“In the big clubs it is difficult to stay a long time because the expectations of results are so high. Madrid’s history and demands mean that if a coach doesn’t win trophies, a change is made. You have to respect that.
“These cases are different, as their owners are from the US and they are more interested in the financial aspect than in who is coach.”
