Rino Rates The EPL

Gennaro "Rino" Gattuso was interviewed by The Sun of England, and was quoted in Sky Sports. He shows an uncanny financial acumen for what may be the hardest man in European football.

"The key factor in the rise of English club football is they have more money than any other country in Europe, Gattuso explained in the Sun. That means their clubs are able to attract the kind of star players who would never have considered a move to England only a few years ago. Premiership clubs own their own stadiums, have foreign owners and get incredible money from TV which is unequalled anywhere in the world. Add the fact that the commercial men at their top clubs do a really good job and I'm afraid that money will finance a long period of English domination in Europe." (1)
