Financial track record of Premiership clubs

Share/Save

Leading football journalist David Conn has provided an analysis of the accounts of Premier League clubs for 2015-16. Manchester United come out top with revenues of £515m and a profit of £49m.

The two years extension to Arsene Wenger's contract has received a rather unenthusiastic response from the club's fans and Conn suggests that any under performance is within Wenger's football operation. Football journalists in general seem to be rather critical of Wenger.

Promotion to the Premier League saw Watford's media income jump from £4.6m in the Championship to £79.6m. A further £15m in loans were taken out during the year and owner Gino Pozzo charges 6 per cent interest.
