The man behind the wallet busting £5.14 billion TV deal for England’s top division was scathing in summary of both FIFA and UEFA.
“It looks like nobody else is giving much up. Even UEFA have let us down a little,” Scudamore said.
While UEFA’s primary club competition will remain largely unaffected by a World Cup in November and December, the world football showpiece is likely to play havoc with the customary Christmas fixtures in England.
Scudamore has suggested that the recommendation for the winter competition goes against the tradition of English football.
It is worth noting that the decision has not yet been finalised though and is likely to be confirmed at FIFA meeting next month in Zurich.
