Tony Pulis believes the scheduling of the EPL has devalued the FA Cup.
There is not much time between the third and fourth round of the FA cup and the EPL, with managers rotating their squad to suit the schedule.
Tony Pulis believes if the schedule was more flexible, teams will take it seriously.
“I’m a traditionalist who thinks the FA Cup is the greatest cup competition in world football,” he said ahead of Saturday’s tie against Bristol City.
“It deserves a clear run, so that managers can pick their strongest sides without being concerned about a league match a few days later.”
