Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner has angrily hit out at EFL chiefs after the club were asked for their 'observations' after making ten changes to their line-up for last weekend's game at Birmingham.
The EFL wrote to Town officials after Blackburn and Nottingham Forest expressed disappointment at the line-up announced by Town, who lost 2-0 at St Andrew's.
A furious Wagner said: "This is nothing to do with (a lack of) integrity (from Huddersfield). I feel I have to apologise or excuse for something... And I have to excuse for nothing.
"It's my squad and I protect and love every single player and every player deserves to start games and they have started games to be fair.
"I cannot understand how these questions come and it only shows me we have a few narrow-minded people in this football business."
