Blades to Pay Preston NE £40 Million Comp
Sheffield Utd have responded quickly to the news that their goalkeeper Paddy Kenny tested positive for a banned substance following last season's Championship play-off semi-final second leg against Preston.
The Sheffield team have run a long campaign for justice in football and have long argued that one player can make all the difference in football. The Blades have therefore admitted that fielding a player on drugs in the semi-final effectively cheated Preston of a Championship final place and the chance to win promotion to the English Premier League.
Sheffield Utd say they have no moral option but to pay Preston £40 million in compensation for denying them their rightful place in the Premier League.
