Sevilla president Del Nido hits out at TV income share

Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido is demanding a better distribution of finances in Spanish football.

Currently Real Madrid and Barcelona receive nearly 135million euros each per season from TV income with Sevilla coming in like all the other clubs bar on 31million euros.

Del Nido led a similar campaign for change last summer which failed, but he believes the demand from the smaller clubs for a more equitable split of the money is growing.

He told AS: "The message is catching on because we started as five or six clubs but our numbers are growing and we are turning the situation around.

"We want better treatment and better conditions for the Segunda Division too so that we can ensure its economic viability and so it cannot be used as a threat against clubs in the vote against the current Primera Division system.

"Hopefully by the end we will have 15 or 16 clubs on our side and that will allow us to reach a distribution of money which is not only fair but equitable."
