FA back Premiership in rejecting foreign quotas

A push to introduce foreign quotas to the Premiership is set to receive short shrift.

The Guardian says the FA's chairman, Lord Triesman, is putting increasing distance between his organisation and the idea of quotas in English football, despite the FA's previous position on the issue.

The Premier League, adamant its members should not be put at a disadvantage against European clubs, is implacably opposed.

Aware also that European law currently bans nationality-based quotas, Triesman has offered assurances that the FA favours an organic route to improving English fortunes.

It wants enhanced, age-specific coaching qualifications and resources available to all young players.
