"Football is about fans. But we're not in an ideal world and certainly, the players I've spoken to accept that if that is what's going to be, that's what it will have to be", said Barnes. "But the reality is that for the vast majority of the players, particularly at the highest level, their income is funded by television money and there are contracts that have to be adhered to".
