In spite of the major economic, social and political changes brought to the island, Brexit may also cause cosmogenic changes at the sporting level, with the example of the Premier League being the most characteristic.
As the newspaper "Times" revealed, the English football federation is expected to present the 20 presidents of the Premier League teams the next day … a plan that predicts a very large reduction in the number of foreign players in the position to use each group.
At the moment, any club that competes in England's top division has the right to have up to 17 non-English footballers, with the plan being in the draft to predict the reduction of that number to 12 so that the native players in each group are more (13 out of 25 in total that the roster may have)!
Of course, if this proposal comes, it will not change all in one day but the decrease will be progressively made by 2020 (according to the Times report), but it should not be overlooked that all its "big" English championship exceeds the number "12"!
In this year's Premier League, 13 of the 20 teams have more than 12 foreign players, while only Burnley and Bournemouth have given the English more time to play in the first 12 games compared to foreign footballers.
All in all, non-native footballers who are fighting in the Premier League are currently 268, with the maximum number that can be there if the measure with the 12 foreigners per group is 240!
Let's look closely at how the situation is, with the number of foreigners in each Premier League club (excluding the naturals):
|CLUB||NUMBER OF HOUSES|
Let's see how much foreigners each team uses in this year's Premier League …
|CLUB||MINIMUM PARTICIPATION OF FOREIGN PLAYERS (%)|
In practice, this means that in the next two transfer periods, it is likely that enough players will leave their teams as free, simply because they will not move to renew their contracts.
As to which foreigners are free from their teams shortly? Get a taste in view of the new football class we expect in Great Britain.
