Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans Joachim-Watzke has accused English clubs of not being run in the interest of their fans.

Watzke told The Guardian that English clubs were too under the control of billionaires with little connection to the clubs.

"I am a little bit romantic, and that is not romantic. In England people seem not to be interested in this at Liverpool they are fine for the club to belong to an American. But the German is romantic: when there is a club, he wants to have the feeling it is my club, not the club of Qatar or Abu Dhabi," said Watzke.
