Bolton Chairman Phil Gartside needs to wake up and smell the coffee if he really thinks the Premier League should cap player’s wages or abandon relegation.

Phil Gartside feels the joint move would make the top flight more competitive but also safeguard clubs who may be tempted to overstretch themselves financially in a bid to avoid the dreaded drop.

Mark Hughes spoke out earlier today and pooh-poohed the idea…

I don’t think it [the salary cap] will happen – I think it would be against European rules.’

‘There are a lot of discussions that go on at Premier League chairmen level; but how realistic they really are I don’t know.’


Sparky continued…

‘With regard to stopping relegation; I think he [Gartside] is just trying to protect his club’s position. I don’t think that is going to happen either.’

Phil Gartside
