BBC pundit makes big claim about Leeds promotion, details one reason other clubs won't accept it

BBC pundit Chris Sutton has said that “Leeds deserve to come up” and said it was only money that was stopping other clubs from accepting it.

Talking on the Monday Night Club Sutton said self-interest from clubs was inevitable because of the huge amount of money in the game.

“We’ve already heard Karren Brady’s view on things and I understand clubs will always look out for themselves,” Sutton said.

“The issue is money, isn’t it? If there was no money everyone would accept that Liverpool were champions and that Norwich City and Aston Villa and Bournemouth would be unhappy but would accept relegation.

“But there’s so much money, there will be these legal wranglings.

“Leeds deserve to come up, I know they need to get over the line, but, you know, who knows where we’re going to go with this?

We’ve always said that Sutton is a man who talks sense!

Seriously though, Leeds do deserve to come up as things stand. Leeds have hardly been out of the top two all season and are seven points clear of Fulham.

At this present moment in time, we’re definitively one of the top two teams in the Championship.

Does that we mean we should actually go up? The last thing we want to do is annoy any fellow Leeds fans but we want to see the season finished.

It’s the only way to sort this fairly.

The Euros were postponed from the summer of 2020 to 2021 on Tuesday and that makes it way more likely that this season will be finished – which seems to be what the majority of people want, and certainly what Leeds want.
