He’s been there for a long time, arguably oversaw the biggest growth in football that England has ever seen and made a shedload of people living there multi millionaires. In terms of financial metrics - the guys done an outstanding job.

But yes, to us sickening. To him though and his kin, they can argue away that it’s a just reward for the work he’s done.

If he has increased their annual income from 670 million to 5.14 Billion I reckon they will not be grumbling about 250k each.
Seems a fair enough reward to me.
If the cash was coming from fans different story but its just a tiny drop of the tv rights money he's secured for them. Why should he not get a wee cut as a thankyou?

If clubs have that kind of money to give as a 'gift' to someone on a Β£2.4M salary, it should be used to cut ticket prices, subsidise fans travelling costs or, more importantly, be put in to grassroots football instead of lining a multi-millionaires pocket.

When people argue that there is money in football, things like this show how wrong they are.
There is plenty of money in football, but it is ill divided, with top clubs and their players getting the bulk of it and the wee boys trying to live on scraps.

Just like the rest of life in some ways, with the poor old top businessmen and entertainment stars toiling away along with others like the royal family.
Meanwhile, 'ordinary' folks are having benefits cut and going to food banks.

Socialist hat off now, but I still don't agree with the premise of the OP.

Unless his contract stated he is entitled to this why is he being rewarded with this thank you? I'm sure he has been lucratively paid for doing his job well over the years.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

You answered your own question. It is not compulsory, it is a thankyou.
I can assure you if someone earned me what he got for those clubs, I would be more than happy to give them a bonus.

I have no problem with people earning millions. What matters is what they do with it.
