Russia coach Hiddink: Premiership needs foreign limits

Russia coach Guus Hiddink believes Premiership clubs should have foreign player limits.

Hiddink, of course, was many people's favourite to take over from Sven Goran Eriksson last summer and has not ruled out interest in the England post in the future.

He said: "I don't know, I cannot predict the future."

But he did have one word of warning for the English game regarding the number of foreign players in the Premiership.

He said: "I have heard some people in the FA have concerns about the future of English players. I can imagine that everybody has that concern.

"If you compare the situation to Russia, in a few years there will be a maximum of four foreign players in the club sides."
