EFL chairman Rick Parry has warned that the impact of UEFA's expansion to the Champions League could lead to the demise of the League Cup. 

In an interview with the Telegraph, Parry said that the change, which will see each team in the Champions League group stage play ten games rather than six, will eventually lead to changes in the tournament now known as the Carabao Cup.

He also spoke of the importance of the competition, saying it's worth about '£100million of clubs' TV revenue' - something that would be lost if the tournament was scrapped.
