Europe´s top leagues have rejected UEFA president Michel Platini´s plans to change the rules for Champions League qualification.

European Professional Football Leagues (EPFL), who represent the likes of the Barclays Premier League, the German Bundesliga and Spain´s La Liga, have dismissed Platini´s proposal to have cup winners qualify automatically for a money-spinning spot in the world´s most important club competition.

And Platini´s attempt to boost the role of smaller nations in the tournament, which would see the top leagues restricted to no more than three representatives, were also shot down.
