Ukrainian sports commentator Andrei Stolyarchuk shared his opinion about the idea to completely stop this season of the championship of Belgium.
“Clubs of the championship of Belgium living by selling their players. According to statistics, last season, 120 million income of the first division of Belgium. The clubs educate the players and then resell them, the example of Ruslan Malinowski. From the point of view of breaking contracts with title sponsors, etc., the penalty is not as big as the top leagues.
In the top Championships is played are several places that getting into the group stage of the Champions League, and it’s just 50-60 million euros of income. So in these leagues insist on the continuation of the Championships. That is not true of Belgium, where every year the champion gets on the line in Champions League group,” said Stolyarchuk.
