Scudamore – who has previously put forward the controversial idea of a 39th Premier League game – suggested that both FIFA and UEFA have let down the European domestic leagues.

“It looks like nobody else is giving much up.

“Even UEFA have let us down a little,” Scudamore said.

The 55-year-old expressed his disappointment in the decision, suggesting that UEFA’s primary concern is the impact that the World Cup will have on the Champions League.

The tournament takes a winter break following the completion of the group stage, so should remain relatively unaffected.

The decision is likely to be confirmed at a FIFA meeting in Zurich next month.
