Richard Masters, chief executive of the Premier League, does not expect the number of substitutions that can be made during a game to grow.
In a bid to curb a rash of injuries, Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have led calls for the Premier League to reintroduce five substitutes this season.
At a meeting of the Internet, Arts, Media, and Sport Committee, Masters, providing testimony, revealed clubs had already voted against it twice and he does not expect it to be changed from three any time soon.
‘We had two club-level votes on it and both were reasonably supportive of the three subs,’ he said.
That, alongside discussions of fixture scheduling, which is related to the pandemic, has generated some frustration. There is a real problem, and shortly, I do not foresee it changing. It was twice voted on.’
