Gazidis says the unspeakable, a salary cap is necessary for European soccer clubs.
Mark this down, a pan-European salary cap (of some variety) will exist in my (born in 1982) lifetime. I really don’t think club football is sustainable without it.
Beginning with professionalism and moving on to racial integration of teams, free agency, players unions, modern stadiums, etc., etc., the US leads in sports innovations and the Europeans inevitable, eventually follow.
It’s gonna happen, the only questions are 1) when?, and 2) how the biggest 10 or so European clubs react when it gets foisted upon then by their leagues and/or the EU?
