Hey, guys, here some interesting statistics about foreign players in Azerbaijan. If you would like to add something to it, I would only appreciate it. Your inputs are highly desirable and very welcomed
Apparently, in our league, we have representatives from 27
(!) countries playing for our teams.
The most popular country of origination is... Serbia
(who would have thought :rollani: ). There are 13 serbian legionaries playing for 6 azeri clubs.
On the second place we have Brazil
, and Ukraine
with 8 players each.
The most popular positions among legionaries are defense and midfield. Almost 65% of all foreign players in Azerbaijan play on these two positions. 25% of foreigners are forwards, and only 10% are goalkeepers.
While looking at them, we can also find that quite a few of them either came from or played before for some "big" club. Among past clubs of our legionaries are teams like russian Spartak Moscow, ukrainian Shakhtar and Dynamo Kyev, brazilian Corinthians and Botafogo, serbian Partizan, french Saint-Etienne, turkish Fenerbahce and Besiktas and ets.
And here’s the complete list in the alphabetical order:
Bosnia and Herzegovina
So, guys, let's discuss, who do you think are the best foreign players in Azerbaijan, and which club do you think has the best and worst transfer policy.
