Man Utd rule out TV rights breakaway

Manchester United joint chairman Joel Glazer ruled out a breakaway from the Premier League over the way clubs negotiate their TV rights.

Glazer said: "I think the collective TV rights model is working very well. It's a major reason why the Premier League is the most popular league in the world. All games are competitive and it, of course, attracts the world's top players."

Some in the game had speculated that the club might try and split from the collective deal. But Glazer said that had never been the case. "We're very supportive of the current model. It's something we've said from the outset."
