Some interesting comments from West Brom about the structure and funding of the EFL and Championship in particular. Think the observations are about spot on.
Former West Brom chief executive Mark Jenkins says the club "had to get out" of the Championship - and has called for a "change in the structure" of the English Football League.
Jenkins retired from his role with the Baggies last month after their promotion back into the Premier League, ending an 18-year association with the West Midlands club.
West Brom return to the top flight two years after being relegated to the Championship and Jenkins told BBC Sport:
- The Championship is a "great product, poorly marketed";
- He is not in favour of salary caps and would prefer limits on squads instead;
- Having club directors on the EFL board is a "conflict of interest";
- Media deals are not good enough, making it "very difficult for football clubs to survive without owners putting money in".
