Wenger fears for PL after Brexit

Arsene Wenger fears the Premier League will suffer following the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union.

In June, 52% of the UK voted in favour of leaving the EU, a result which sent shockwaves across Europe.

Outgoing FA chairman Greg Dyke believes it will be two years before the Premier League feels the effect of the referendum, but Wenger fears it will have a negative impact on the game in England.

"It worries me, it shocks me too," Wenger told France Football. "Nobody knows how exactly this is going to translate into a practical plan. Nobody really knows where we are going.

"But the shock, is that we discover that in England there is a majority of people who want to leave the European Union.

"The players will see their wages come down a bit and the competition with Germany, for example, will be stronger.

"In my opinion, it is overwhelmingly in the long-term that there are questions to be answered. The way in which England will leave the European Union will dictate the future of the Premier League.

"If the league becomes less attractive, the broadcasters will offer less money for the rights, club revenues will decrease and the Premier League will suffer the consequences. There lies the problem."
