Premier League chief sounds EFL warning as future of League One and Two clubs under threat

“At the moment, the best thing we can do is to get back playing because that is what we can focus on. What we need to ensure is that we know our financial situation before we get to that topic.”

Speaking last month, EFL chairman Parry said: “We’d love to see some money trickling down [to the EFL], we haven’t seen any evidence of it yet but I’m sure the Premier League has some ideas that they will tell us about in due course.

“We need to know where we’re heading in two and three years. We need hope, we need a plan and we need some clarity on the longer-term future.

“We are doing everything we can to make clubs survive – [but] the cash hole to autumn looks grim. That is acute and does need a rescue.

“The landscape going forward about wages, and costs incurred by clubs, has got to change. We need a rescue package but we also need to address the longer term.

“We can’t go from one bail out to another. We need to look at the structure – root and branch.”

And he added: “Parachute payments are an evil that needs to be eradicated.
