. Speaking to Sky Sports News, Neville said: “The principle is that we don't trust that football can govern itself and create the fairest deal for all, whether that's the Premier League, EFL clubs, non-League clubs or the fans. “It has been proven over this past six months that football has struggled to bring everyone together and proven to be incapable over a 25-30 year period of transforming the money in the game into something that works for everybody. “I want the best Premier League in the world, but I want sustainable football clubs. The group is led by former FA chairman David Bernstein (Getty Images) “There is enough money in the game to be able to have an elite Premier League, a sustainable and competitive EFL, money passed down to non-League and grassroots and where fans can get a fair deal. “That's where an independent regulator, with that spirit at the heart of it, can come in and say 'that's not fair'.”
