Serie A sides get second foreigner Thursday 3 July, 2008

The Federal Council has given the green light for Italian sides to have more than one non-EU player in their squad.

Italian clubs have struggled to compete with their European neighbours in recent years, as they have been allowed no more than one player with non-EU status.

In Spain, clubs may have three and in France four, whereas the Bundesliga demands that German sides have at least eight homegrown players in their squad.

The change in Italy could render Serie A sides more active in the market and could see new players become targets.

“The law has passed,” explained Italian Coaches Association head Renzo Ulivieri [pictured]. “New talent can now arrive in Italy to reinforce our squads.”

For 2008-09, the rule will apply to Serie A sides who have “the possibility of signing two non-EU players where at least one is to replace a non-EU player who has become a free agent or moved abroad.

C4===========================================

I still dont quite understand the last part.......

I don't understand. Isn't half our squad non-EU? How were we able to get on the pitch last season? :howler:

Besides Cambi, Zanetti, and Crespo, who else also has dual citizenship?

You are allowed to sign limitless amount of non-EU players IF you sign them from a club in Italy (the limit is on signing from overseas). Which is where you got several of your players (even Maxwell you "bought" from Empoli).

And most of the non-EU players have legit passes after being their a while (Like Zanetti), through concrete heritage and having the passes before they came to Italy, OR many of them magically finding out their origins when a big team wants them.

P.S That last part sound weird, yeah.

However, the statement:

"The Federal Council has given the green light for Italian sides to have more than one non-EU player in their squad."

Implies that it doesn't matter where you sign the players from. I guess the writer isn't that good with his facts then.

All of inter's players in the current squad except for maxwell and maybe rivas have either Italian or spanish passports. In some cases like Zanetti they actually have citizenship.

I guess from FM game it means that we can sign 2 non-eu players in a year, as for previuse times u could sign only 1 per year.

The journalists knows little, Talus. The restriction was you can only sign one Non-EU player from overseas per season.

You can sign as many as you want from other italian clubs, and you can have several in the squad, no direct limitations. The journo must confuse serie a with other leagues la liga, who has resctriction on having only 4-5 non eu on the squad.

:thmbup: yeah Inter bought J.Cesar and sent him to Chievo for a year, meaning we were able to skip over this rule because we were getting a non-eu player from Chievo rather than a non-eu state and leaving the non-eu spot for someone else
