Leeds oppose changes for more international breaks - Kaveh Solhekol

Leeds United have joined their fellow Premier League in opposing more international breaks and a change to the World Cup.

There have been suggestions that the World Cup could be held every two years rather than the four it is now.

Solhekol has shared that every club in the Premier League has come together to oppose those potential future plans.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Solhekol shared the update that will effect every club in the Premier League.

“All 20 Premier League clubs unanimously oppose proposals for World Cup every two years and significantly extended international windows,” he said.

No chance.

There would be no world in which this would benefit our clubs.

International breaks are unbearable as they are, so them being extended would be shocking for the normal football fan.

It would be interesting to see if anyone would actually welcome this, players, clubs and fans – we believe the answer would be no.

If anything, the current breaks are too long as they are.

Thankfully, it looks as though it was a simple answer for the 20 Premier League clubs who clearly oppose it strongly.

With this action taken, those plans will be back on the drawing board and it may be quite some time before they come out of the surface again.

There is nothing wrong with a World Cup every four years, and if something isn’t broken, don’t try and fix it.
