Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has slammed plans to limit the number of foreigners in the Premiership.

He said: "I think since the Bosman case came about, there has always been a discussion about this.

"My opinion is this. If you want to have an open Europe in life, in business life, with people working in different countries, you can't take football away from that. So I think you have to live with it.

"And if you try to make rules that say the Premier League can only have two, three or four foreigners, I'm sure that if someone went to the European Court to challenge that, they would win the case.

"You can't take away lawyers or footballers from the rest of Europe."
