“I support the decision that foreign footballers in national squad are to be considered legionaries”, Khazar-Lankaran head coach Agaselim Mirjavadov told APA-Sport.
Mirjavadov stated that he expected the legionary limit will be changed. He said he expected limit “5” to be approved.
“I wanted it to be “5” more than “5+2”. But the main thing is the foreigners playing in national squad will not be called local footballers. The foreigners should have status of legionary though they play in national team. We have lost a year, anyway. The limit should have been increased before taking into consideration the situation in national football”, he said.
Neftchi hed coach Gurban Gurbanov also considered limit “5” more expedient. Gurbanov stated that the decision on legionaries in the squad is fair.
“I am for the foreign footballers in national team to be considered as legionaries. I think this decision is right step forward. There was discontent among the clubs before as the club legionaries differed in number because of foreigners playing in national team. Now all clubs will have equal rights”, he said. /APA-Sport/
