TV is Killing Man United’s Champions League Chances, Says Sir Alex Ferguson: The Nightly EPL

Sir Alex Ferguson has been criticizing the Premier League and Sky Sports for putting his match this weekend against Everton in the marquee Premier League timeslot — on Sunday at 11am ET/4pm UK time — the space that’s typically reserved for the game of the week. Just a few days later, on Wednesday, Manchester United plays Real Madrid at Bernabeu Stadium.

On one hand, being Manchester United means that they get most of the TV revenue from the Premier League; more than any other club. I’m sure the Glazers are happy with the situation as long as Fergie can get decent results in both the match against Everton and Los Blancos.

Or, knowing Fergie, is he just trying to have an excuse lined up in case Madrid take an impressive lead in the first leg?
