Sepp Blatter believes the support of British MPs in his bid to restrict foreign players could be crucial in having the proposal agreed by Europe. In a report on the governance of English football, the all-party Parliamentary Football Group - made up of 150 MPs - recommended for Sepp Blatter's controversial 6+5 rule to be adopted.
And the Fifa president is delighted with their recommendations.
"I would like to express our satisfaction to the all-party Parliamentary Football Group for recommending yesterday that the Football Association and respective English leagues adopt the Fifa-proposed 6+5 rule," said Blatter.
"This report represents another important contribution to the ongoing debate as well as a new mark of support towards the cause we are advocating.
"These recommendations are based on the need to protect national teams, promote youth development, safeguard and encourage clubs investing in training domestic talent, restore the competitiveness of competitions, and reach a harmonious development of football worldwide."
