I get that in a normal environment that bonus would seem reasonable. But football markets itself as “The people’s game”, which makes this situation laughable. Also, he’s not even bloody leaving! He’s going to earn more as a consultant than he did from his salary as executive chairman!
I also find it annoying that Scudamore promised to give 5% of PL income to grassroots football. That never happened. But hey, as long as he gets another £5m out of the PL it’s all good.
