Former Football Association chief executive Mark Palios has described the Premier League´s proposed ´international round´ of matches as "a step too far".

The plans have received little backing since they were first revealed two weeks ago and Manchester United chief executive David Gill is expected to tell Thursday´s FA board meeting his club are in opposition.

Palios, who endured a troubled 13 months at the FA from 2003 to 2004, told BBC Radio Five Live: "Intuitively, I´m against it prima facie. At the moment, at one level we should have less football, not more."
