Gary Neville is leading a 'Manifesto for Change' which seeks to restructure English football following the failure of Project Big Picture.
The former Manchester United captain, who co-owns League Two clubs Salford City, is part of a group which includes former FA chairman David Bernstein, ex-FA executive director David Davies and Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham which is calling for independent regulation of the game.
Their manifesto, which outlines a series of reforms, was published on Thursday with Neville claiming football has proven incapable of governing itself and distributing money fairly.
