The Football League have branded Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas' call for the top clubs to be allowed to field reserve sides in the Championship as "offensive".

Villas-Boas claims the youth system in England needs a revolutionary change and wants to see a replica of Spain where for example Barcelona's 'B' team play in the second flight just below the Primera Liga.

Football League chief operating officer Andy Williamson said: "The suggestion that Football League clubs should become feeder clubs to a select handful of elite clubs is frankly offensive to the hundreds of thousands of people that watch competitive professional football in our competition every weekend."
