Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has rejected a proposal by Barcelona president Sandro Rosell to reduce the major European leagues to 16 teams and play Champions League fixtures at weekends.

Rosell, speaking at a conference in Qatar earlier this week, said he wants Europe's top leagues, including the Premier League, to reduce in size in order to boost the Champions League.

But Scudamore has come out against cutting the Premier League down from its present 20 clubs, rejecting a view he feels suits the Spanish club but not the clubs he represents. He told CNN: "Well that's very nice of him to issue that as a statement but that's a very Barcelona-centric view."
