IMUSA supports PFA call for a fair deal
The Independent Manchester United Supporters Association fully support the PFA's
call for a fair share of the massive amount of money coming into the game from the
new TV deals.
IMUSA chair, Mark Longden said:
"We believe the PFA should receive
a guaranteed agreed percentage of any money coming into the game via TV. OK a few
high profile players earn a lot of money nowadays but football has been played for
over a 100 years. That's a lot of ex pro's who never earned a fortune, many of whom
are suffering the consequences health wise, of entertaining the public."
"We have approached the FA, DCMS, Football trust etc to
try to raise the finances for a number of campaigns to improve the lot of the match
going fan and the only people who have ever supported us financially are the PFA"
IMUSA press officer, Jules Spencer said:
"IMUSA sent a 10 man team
of under 26 year olds out to Italy in July for an Anti Racist 5 a side world cup competition.
Without the help of the PFA we would not have been able to do this and England would
have had no club representation out there"
