Chris Wilder has accused rival Premier League managers of being selfish after Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola insisted clubs should be allowed to use five substitutes.

Top flight clubs, including Sheffield United, voted against the proposal in August with many believing the rule only benefitted teams with bigger squads and budgets.

Klopp and Guardiola have argued that players are not being protected but Wilder rejected their stance, claiming they are driven by self-interest.

Sheffield United are currently bottom and without a win this season and Wilder also insisted he had little sympathy for clubs who have hectic schedules due to European football.

Both Klopp and Guardiola have highlighted the increasing number of injuries to players, which is one of the reasons they are advocates of five subs.

Guardiola has only used three subs on two occasions.

The EFL announced on Wednesday that they would allow clubs to use five subs for the rest of the season, starting with Friday's game between Birmingham and Coventry.
