Clubs request EU rule change

After Italian teams failed to reach the European semi-finals, clubs are asking to be allowed a third non-EU player.

The rules restricting how many non-EU players Serie A sides could sign per season were imposed after the 2010 World Cup to encourage more room for homegrown talent.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Lega Serie A – union of clubs – will ask the FIGC to relax the limits on non-EU players.

As the situation now stands, a club can sign two non-EU players per season, but must sell one in order to make room for another.
