Scudamore still convinced 39th game will happen

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has again insisted playing games on foreign soil 'will' happen. The idea would see an additional set of fixtures added to the Premier League calendar with the games due to be played anywhere in the world.

"It's on the back-burner for a bit but playing games abroad will happen, it's just a question of in which format," Scudamore told the Daily Mail.

Scudamore insisted the extra games would not be a pre-cursor to any European Super League.

He added: "The difference between this and the European Super League is that the European Super League isn't inevitable - that's the difference."
