PSV chairman Jan Reker prefers for fellow Dutch side FC Twente to be eliminated by Arsenal in the third preliminary round of the Champions League, as it would be better ‘financially’.

In an interview with ‘De Telegraaf’, known in the Netherlands as a scandal-seeking newspaper, Reker reveals that he hoped for a tough draw for Twente.

“If Twente make it to the group phase, they will get 45 percent and we, as champions, would have to do with 55 percent,” said the club president.

The elimination from Twente would earn PSV an additional nine million Euros in this season’s Champions League, enough reason to put aside chauvinism, according to Reker.

“For Twente it would be a shame, financially. But for Dutch football it wouldn’t matter, maybe it’s even better. The points you earn in the UEFA Cup are just as important as the ones you earn in the Champions League.”
