Frank McAvennie has labelled the Liverpool-led proposals outlined in ‘Project Big Picture’ as “awful”.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the legendary former Celtic and West Ham striker believes the plans are “just a power grab”.
The Telegraph reported at the weekend that Liverpool owner John W. Henry and director Mike Gordon have been heavily involved in producing an 18-page document detailing radical changes to English football.
The plans include a £250million bailout of the EFL as well as controversial changes to the voting process in the Premier League and reducing the top-flight to an 18-team division.
Asked by Football Insider what he made of the proposals, McAvennie said: “I don’t think it’s right, I really don’t. I think it’s the big clubs just looking after themselves.
“It’s like giving their pocket money to the EFL, it’s not right.
