Madejski: no match 39 plan

Madejski: no match 39 plan

Reading chairman John Madejski believes that the idea of playing an international round of matches in the Premiership is 'already in the trash bin' but praised Premier League chief Richard Scudamore for his brave ideas.

"It's already been consigned to the trash bin," said Madejski.

"I don't think it's going to grow legs now. There are too many people against it.

"It's great Richard has come up with an idea like this, and I hope he brings out a few more, but this one is obviously not going to happen.

"It does have merit, though, but rather it should be an exhibition game rather than a league game because it is good for the Premier League to be exported abroad."
