Wigan owner calls for debt limits for clubs

Wigan owner Dave Whelan wants measures to limit clubs' debt and punish those who spend way beyond their means. Whelan told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme he believes rules should be introduced to limit debt.

"UEFA are going to say things about debt and actually, I agree with them," he said.

"They are talking about salary caps again now but what we should be doing is limiting the amount of debt that each club can have.

"Let's say 25 or 30% of your total income and you can't have any more debt on your balance sheet than that. If you do, you are breaking the rules and you get points deducted or whatever."
