Premier League clubs must face Saudi threat
The Saudi Pro League’s threat to the Premier League clubs and other premier European leagues has suddenly become clear. The Saudis have stepped on the toes of the stakeholders who have long fawned over the English Premier League.
The so-called “best league in the world” is in grave danger of being dethroned by a competition that does not even crack the Global Football Rankings’ top 33. Of course, money talks, as is the case with most things.
It appears that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is the latest player to be enticed to travel to the Middle East, where he will be paid a multimillion-pound wage to ignore human rights concerns and the possibility of sports laundering.
