Leeds United supporters could soon have a real say in the running of their club.
That is according to finance guru and Football Insider columnist Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively after the government announced a fan-led review into club ownership.
The talks come in the wake of the now-scrapped European Super League, which Leeds bigwigs vehemently opposed.
The fallout has raised questions about the relationship between supporters and owners, sparking protests among many fanbases.
And Maguire claims that the government’s review could lead to genuine change at Leeds United and across the board in the Premier League.
He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “We could see greater fan representation at board level.
“Giving fans a nuclear share, that might be significant. Your standard shares are owned by Radrizzani. But giving fans a nuclear share would give them the right to veto certain decisions.
“That might be over resigning from a league, entering a new competition, moving stadiums, changing the colour of the shirt etc.
“We could also get an independent general regulator such as they have in the NFL or NBA.
“There does appear to be cross-party interest in this review now. The chairman and the terms of reference have now been announced, which is encouraging.”
The ESL co-conspirators have seen their representatives removed from key committees in the Premier League, Uefa and ECA.
It is unclear whether further punishments will follow.
