UEFA president Michel Platini believes there is no chance of success for Sepp Blatter’s plan to limit the number of overseas players in European club competitions.
FIFA president Blattter hopes to introduce a policy which would ensure all clubs field at least six homegrown players in their starting line-ups by 2010.
But Platini argues that such a move would contravene the continent’s labout laws which allows any European national to work in any EU country.
“It’s impossible,” Platini told Sky Sports News.
“We cannot defend that today; we do not have the legal framework.
“The free movement of workers is the number one rule in Europe.”
