Morgan: Fine understrength United

Wolves owner Steve Morgan claims it will be "hypocritical'' of the Premier League if they fail to fine Manchester United should they field a weakened side in their final game against Blackpool.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has taken that step in the past for matches with West Ham and Hull on the last day of league campaigns. United will face the Seasiders at Old Trafford on Sunday, less than a week before the Champions League final, with speculation mounting that Ferguson will rest several key players.

Wolves were handed a suspended £25,000 fine for making ten changes for a match against United last season and Blackpool were fined during this campaign for adopting the same approach at Aston Villa.

Morgan said: "We can only do what we have to do. I think United put out a second string against Schalke and it didn't do them much good.

"I don't know what they will do. United are a very professional club and will not want to lose on the final day, on the day they get presented with the Premier League trophy. They are not going to want to lose going into the Champions League final.''

But, when asked if he expected United to be fined by the Premier League if they field a weakened side, Morgan said: "It would be pretty hypocritical if they weren't (fined).''

Wolves will stay up if they beat Blackburn at Molineux, but Morgan insists the club will not go into financial meltdown if they are relegated. He revealed every player is scheduled to take a pay cut according to the terms of their current contracts should Wolves go down.

Morgan said: "The current players' contracts depend on which division they are in, everybody. I know that's not true at a lot of clubs where they've got certain players who are on the same whatever happens.

"Everyone here has got that sort of contract. That's what we do. It is financial suicide to do anything other than that. Your revenue would drop by £30 million if we go down so who the hell is going to pick that up? You have to cut your cloth when you go down.''

Morgan added: "We have lost players for that reason but not many. Most clubs do try to enforce that anyway. The top clubs can afford not to because I don't think Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal are going to go down next season. But for the rest, it would be crazy not to.''
