RISHI Sunak has delayed announcing his footie shake-up after we blew the lid on the plans last week.
The PM was due to unveil the overhaul this week but has now kicked it back a fortnight following the bombshell leak to the Sun.
Our report revealed plans for a new regulator to block takeovers from dodgy owners while giving fans a greater say in the running of clubs.
Teams would also be banned from joining breakaway competitions like the European Super League.
And Premier League clubs would be forced to give more money to struggling lower league sides.
Insiders admitted the delay was to let the dust settle after the leak so the PM can announce the Football White Paper with fanfare.
But Shadow Culture Secretary Lucy Powell said: “We urgently need proper football regulation.
“Bury has already collapsed.
“Many other clubs have been pushed to the brink.”
Downing Street said it’s “not uncommon for timings to move on certain policies”.
