這個算是昨日在雜誌 #收錢Post 的一個跟進報道。在出席KPMG Football Benchmark的發佈活動時，奪得「歐洲霸主」之位的曼聯的CFO Cliff Baty有份出席演講。
Speaking at the KPMG Football Benchmark event in London on Wednesday. Cliff Baty, the English Premier League side’s chief financial officer said that last summer’s Brexit vote, which led to a sharp drop in the pound against the euro, had complicated the transfers of big-name players.
“It was a bit difficult last year when we were trying to make signings and you had players questioning the value of being paid in sterling,” he said.
“A lot of European players will want to be paid in euros, understandably to a degree. But we are a sterling company . . . [and] managing that is quite tricky.”
“It was a practical operational issue around bringing in players, and losing competitive advantage against Real Madrid and Barcelona,” he said. “You could get 16-year-olds going to them, if we have to wait until they are 18 [to sign youth players].”
