Tottenham boss Redknapp: Every EPL club will soon be foreign-owned

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes every club in the Premier League will soon be foreign-owned.

In his column for The Sun, Redknapp wrote: "Already, Venky's are talking of a top four or five finish for Blackburn Rovers and I'm sure it's what fans want to hear but you have to ask whether it is realistic.

"Soon, I believe every Premier League club will be owned by a foreign billionaire and they will all want the same thing - the title.

"Managers have an average shelf life of around three years but with the foreign owner influx this will be cut and you will see the revolving door speed up to once a year.

"I am absolutely convinced down the line, Premier League games will take place all around the world.

"The Chinese owner wants his team to play in his homeland, the Russian billionaire will want games played in Moscow, the Indian food magnate will want to show off what he has got in his own backyard. I don't think there is anyone or anything that can stop it.'
