Premier League refuse to contemplate legal action over winter World Cup

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has cooled prospects of taking legal action to prevent a winter World Cup. Scudamore and his counterparts across the 'big five' European leagues are furious at the prospect of the 2022 event in Qatar being shifted from its traditional summer slot due to the searing temperatures and the resulting upheaval of domestic season's.

"I wouldn't go there," said Scudamore. "That is far too contentious really; taking on the world governing body.

"We will do our lobbying but it is far too premature to be talking about legal action."
