Alison McGovern responds to EFL rescue package agreed with Premier League

Alison McGovern MP, Labour’s Shadow Sports Minister, responding to the rescue package agreed between the EFL and the Premier League, said:

“It is vital that no much-loved club is allowed to cease to exist purely due to Covid-19.

“It is equally important that we see long term reform of football governance and finance. This pandemic has exposed deep-rooted problems in our national game.

“Without reform football will be back facing a similar crisis in the future.”
