Uefa sets foreign player limits

Uefa president Lennart Johansson wants to restrict foreign players
Uefa has announced clubs competing in the Champions League and Uefa Cup will have to include four homegrown players in their 25-man squad from 2006.
Europe's governing body also wants to implement the plan in domestic leagues but that will have to be agreed by each national association.

Uefa then wants six homegrown players by 2007 and eight in 2008.

Of the eight, at least four must be trained by the club's own academy and the rest in the home country.

Uefa defines a club-trained player as one who has been registered for a minimum of three seasons with the club between the age of 15 and 21.

Of the 32 sides in last season's Champions League, five clubs would have not had enough homegrown players to meet the requirement of eight under the eventual new ruling.

They are: Arsenal, Chelsea, Celtic, Rangers and Ajax.

Uefa's 52 member associations will vote on whether the same rule should apply to domestic competitions at a Congress in Tallinn, Estonia in April.

There has already been strong opposition voiced by the Premier League and the Italian federation.

But Uefa chief executive Lars-Christer Olsson said: "We think this is a reasonable compromise based on all the consultations we have had.

"Although we have had negative responses from some leagues and some bigger clubs in those leagues, all the others involved have been very supportive of this idea.

"We also think the proposal is legal, because it is a sporting rule, not as a restriction, to develop and promote young players."

But a Premier League spokesman said: "Uefa clearly believes they have a robust-enough legal position to introduce the changes within their competitions.

"However, it is extremely unlikely that such a rule change will be introduced in our domestic competition."

Roman has worked on building a proper youth system so long term it will not be an issue. For the next few years, it depends on how this rule is applied. Im sure it will be brought in slowly so as not to upset current contracts and the such.

Hasn't Robert Huth come from the youth system?

If I'm right......
Robert Huth
John Terry
Glen Johnson (joined at 18?) could be considered home grown

bought from other clubs.
Joe Cole
Frank Lampard
Scott Parker


That's six players already.

Only Terry is homegrown, Huth was brought.

"Huth is a giant of a defender snapped up by Chelsea from the youth system at German club Union Berlin."

yeah I knew Robert Huth is a kraut, but thought he came up from the youth system.

Yeah, but it's still not only Terry who meets the criteria is it? Wasn't Glenn Johnson bought at 18 years old?

UEFA proposals
From the start of the 2007 season, it is proposed that any club
qualifying for a European competition must have no more than 25 players in their first-team squad.

Four of those players, however, must be home-grown, two of them having been trained between the ages of 15 and 21 by the club's own youth training programme, while two others could be
developed by other clubs, provided these clubs are part of the same
national association as the buying club.


Stil that's narrowed down from six to two. :howler:

How I'm I?

Johnson was bought from another club yes, but he was bought from another club from the same national association as Chelsea and he was bought when he was 18 years old.

again.........

By the way, five clubs from last year's Champions League wouldn't have met the new requirements. Among them were Ajax, Bayern Munchen, ARSENAL, CHELSEA, and one other big club.

At this point, we can field entire team concidering these rules, and it would be even a good team. So eventually there isn't any point to have such rules at all.
