Ronnie O’Sullivan says snooker now a ‘nothing sport’ and ‘like a car boot sale’ – Telegraph.co.uk
“Maybe if it went to China and you found some billionaires out there who would put the sport on and have million pound prize money you could start looking at snooker as a core sport again,” said O’Sullivan, widelyÂ known as ‘Rocket Ronnie’.
“But you’re competing with Formula One, tennis, golf and the Olympics.
“They give it (snooker) like 10 seconds on BBC Sports Personality – it’s a complete insult to the sport but it’s what they think of it and what they believe it warrants, and that says it all really.”
O‘Sullivan sailed through to the fourthÂ round of the UK Championship in York with a 6-1Â win over Londoner Michael Georgiou, but believesÂ snooker is underselling itself.Â
