Barcelona chief: Premiership clubs won't dominate Europe

Barcelona vice-president Ferran Soriano has dismissed fears Premiership clubs like tonight's finalists Manchester United and Chelsea will dominate the Champions League in the coming years.

He said: "The Premier League is very well managed and commercially much wealthier than the other major leagues. But Barcelona, Real Madrid, Milan and Juventus are still individually among the biggest, richest European clubs, so I do not think English clubs will dominate the Champions League. As for club structure, the level of debt seems very high and the Manchester United takeover, particularly, a risky investment. There are other models, but I prefer Barcelona's."
