The Football League slams Andre Villas-Boas after the Chelsea manager suggests that Premier League clubs should field 'B' teams in the Championship.

The Football League has hit out at Andre Villas-Boas over his plans for Premier League 'B' teams.

The Chelsea manager suggested earlier this week that top flight clubs should field sides in the Championship to develop players.

"The suggestion that Football League clubs should become feeder clubs to a select handful of elite clubs is frankly offensive to the hundreds of thousands of people that watch competitive professional football in our competition every weekend," said chief operating officer Andy Williamson.

Villas-Boas took over at Stamford Bridge from Porto in the summer.
