"For me, that's nonsense," he insisted. "I mean 'Why?' The rules now say you can watch, as long as you follow protocol, any Academy game so why would you not be allowed to watch the Under-21s?

"If that's the rule, you can't have closed-door games. If you talk about the Academy ideally including the second-team now in terms of the rules, they say the Academy have to allow other clubs to come and watch these games and follow them. That's another thing people won't really comprehend until they're suddenly getting lots of requests to come and watch games."
