Millwall’s John Berylson issues strong words on fellow Championship clubs



Millwall chairman John Beryslon has stated that he is sick of teams in the Championship not obeying the rules when it comes to finances.

The Championship season is currently halted due to the outbreak of Covid-19 that has effected almost every football league in the world.

The financial implications that this is having, and will have in the future on a number of EFL clubs is becoming clearer by the day and a number of clubs have made cuts to ensure they can survive in what is a tough period for many.

Berylson has consistently acted on a low budget within his Millwall side, and despite that has them just two points outside the top six and fighting for a place in the Premier League under manager Gary Rowett.

The chairman has insisted that no one is obeying the rules, and that he is sick and tired of it.

Speaking to London News Online, Berylson said: “Every team we play will have someone in the squad who will be paid £100,000 a week.

“No one is obeying the rules. The outcome of that is boom and bust. Don’t forget what that does to the fans.

“I’m tired of teams finding a way around the rules. I look forward to the end of gimmicks.”

The Verdict

He has a good point, and number of clubs are consistently taking financial gambles in order to get to the Premier League, despite continuing to fail to do so.

Berylson has ran Millwall appropriately and is a good example of how to keep a football club going without having to invest an absurd amount.

The decisions that he’s made in the past has put them in a good position for the future, and if the season is to return, they still have a very good chance of achieving a top-six finish.
