“The application of legionary limit to national team will not negatively affect our activity”, Azerbaijan squad head coach Shahin Diniyev told APA-Sport.
The trainer didn’t consider “5+2” limit in national team a big deal.
“I will not comment on the application of legionary limit because it is not in my authority. I am responsible for preparation of play of national team. But I think this decision will not make things difficult. I have stated before that legionaries in national team will be reduced in number. Though I picked seven legionaries, I don’t field all of them at the same time. I replace one legionary with another during the matches”, he said.
Diniyev noted that there is no problem if a legionary in national team will be considered a foreign footballer. The trainer thinks the legionaries will continue to play with previous motivation.
“I don’t think the legionaries will spare no effort in national team after the decision. I say it because I know them well. Besides, they don’t stay in reserve in their clubs”, he said. /APA-Sport/
