West Ham boss David Moyes wants League Cup replaced with British Cup

West Ham manager David Moyes has proposed a British Cup following calls from UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin to scrap the League Cup.

Ceferin told The Times on Thursday that it would be “better for everyone” if England’s secondary knockout competition was taken off the fixture schedule to lighten the load of top players.

Ceferin’s call comes as FIFA prepares to launch an additional tournament in the summer of 2021 – a 24-team Club World Cup – and as his own organisation is understood to be in talks to endorse an expanded version of the pre-season International Champions Cup.

The League Cup came into existence in 1960 but in recent years has tended to be seen as a competition where teams can try out young or fringe players.

Moyes prefers the idea of a revamp rather than scrapping it altogether, and likes the idea of teams from other countries taking part.

“My opinion on it is I’ve always thought we should have included Scotland,” he said.

“I think it could do with a revamp, maybe there’s a way that then a certain amount of Premier League teams wouldn’t enter.
