EFL ON THE EDGE

Clubs in the EFL could be facing a turbulent future according to football finance expert Kieran Maguire.

Maguire reckons the industry could be “taken out at the knees” by the impact of the coronavirus.

Maguire told BBC Sport: “The game was living at the edge before the pandemic.

“It’s not a sustainable business model unless you have sugar daddies who are prepared to write out those cheques for £20-30m a year – which to give them credit, most of them have been keen to do for reasons nobody has ever quite managed to fathom.

“But if we now move to a situation where there’s no money coming in, those losses of £20-30m a year in the Championship could easily extend.”
