The Frenchman thinks the introduction of regulations governing how much money clubs can lose will improve the English league and give smaller clubs a chance to compete

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists the introduction of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules will help make Premier League football even better.

The Frenchman has shown a frugal approach to the transfer market during his time with the North London side and thinks the new rules will only help to even the playing field in the financially strong league.

“You say we have an interesting league, it will be more interesting with FFP," Wenger told the club's official website.

"If you look at the history of England, there is Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Derby County who have all won championships. If that is possible again it will be even more interesting.

“What is realistic is to vote for the Financial Fair Play, I think it will be voted [for] in England [when it is put before the Premier League]."

The UEFA Executive committee approved the new regulations in 2009 which aim to create a more level playing field, with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea being unable to record some of the huge losses they have made in recent years.
