Richard Bevan, the chief executive of the League Managers Association, said this week that some of the American and Asian owners of Premier League teams have been talking about scrapping the system that sends the bottom three teams to the second-tier Champions League. But Henry called that "complete nonsense," telling The Associated Press it "hasnt been discussed." Half of the Premier Leagues 20 teams are foreign-owned. Arsenal, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Manchester United and Sunderland are owned by Americans, while Blackburn is under Indian ownership and Queens Park Rangers has Malaysian backers. American sports leagues dont follow the European model that relegates the bottom teams in the standings and promotes the top teams from the minor leagues. Bevan warned that, if more teams are sold to overseas investors, they could force a change in the longstanding rules. "There are a number of overseas-owned clubs already talking abbout bringing about the avoidance of promotion and relegation in the Premier League," Bevan said at the Professional Players Federation conference in London. Antonio Brown Elite Jersey "If we have four or five more new owners, that could happen." A change would require support from 14 of the leagues 20 clubs and approval by The Football Association; league rules state the FAs consent is needed for "the making and adoption of or any amendment to ... promotion to and relegation from the league." It would also meet opposition from Europes soccer and political institutions. Other American-owned teams have also dismissed Bevans claims. United manager Alex Ferguson, whose club is owned by American Malcom Glazer and his family, said eliminating relegation "would be absolute suicide for the rest of the teams in the country, particularly the Championship." The Villa board headed by American Randy Lerner, who also owns NFLs Cleveland Browns, was "confused and surprised" by Bevans remarks. But Bevan said "particularly American owners without doubt" have been looking at a system without relegation. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
