By the way, it's really an injustice to Turkish players. An injustice, because foreign European clubs have to make choices.....

But at the same time, we don't have almost every talent snatched from under us while they're still 18-19 years old like some nations with EU status do..

If a Turkish player is good enough, they can go into Europe and within a year they should be able to pick up "honourary" EU status from the countries federation, like Nihat has in Spain..

I did read about a court-decision at the newspapers today. Accordint to the article, players from countries that have association treaties wont be regarded as foreigners anymore. This was about a Russian player. Now this could also mean that turkish players in EU AND EU players in Turkey wont be considered as foreigners anymore...

I don't agree with you, you are not part of EU and hence EU labour laws do not apply to Turkish citizens, just like Turkish tax law doesn't apply to me (puh :))

Don't worry though, you will be part of EU soon enough, or at least reach a colaborative status that allows players to play as intra-EU citizens. :)

Not sure this would be a good thing for Turkish football though...:lazy:
