"Can you imagine if you're a player who is playing in either the Copa America or Euro 2024 having to do that? Madness. Crazy," Shearer told Match Of The Day.

"I wouldn't be happy at all. It's crazy for Newcastle to go and play Spurs there on Wednesday night and then another game."

Both clubs are making significant sums from the game, but even Premier League chief executive Richard Masters admitted recently that teams were playing too many games.
