Football News
Premier League chairman Richard Scudamore has admitted rules will be tightened in the wake of the Carlos Tevez affair.

The Argentina striker is currently awaiting the completion of a protracted move to Manchester United after months of wrangling over his ownership and eligibility and after much criticism for their handling of the affair Scudamore said the Premier League had now moved to tighten things up, with changes expected to be ratified at a Premier League board meeting next week.

"Changes have to be made for the same reason the Stevens report (into alleged bungs) was necessary," he told The Times. "We cannot keep taking this blow to our reputation and the clubs recognise that. I think there is a feeling that we have to act differently to avoid this turmoil."
