Fulham defender Volz slams FIFA president Blatter

Fulham defender Moritz Volz has slammed FIFA president Sepp Blatter in his column for The Times.

Blatter wants to bring foreign limits to European Leagues.

Volz wrote: “Sepp Blatter, what are you on about? Your idea of limiting domestic club sides to five foreign players in a starting XI to allow home-grown talent to flourish is mad. If you had your way I would probably be working in a restaurant in Germany instead of playing for Fulham. But then, why am I surprised? The only decent thing you have suggested was that girls should play in tight shorts to increase the popularity of the women’s game. Genius. You obviously got to the top of Fifa because of your sense of humour.

“To be fair to Blatter, I can see what he’s trying to achieve by proposing to cap the number of foreigners. But how he – or anyone in their right mind for that matter – can think it would do anything other than damage the game is beyond me. I naturally see it from a Barclays Premier League perspective, although I know he’s not just attacking our top flight. But in my view it’s the Premier League that would suffer most, setting it back years.

“After eight years here, I also see myself as a Londoner as much as a German and you only have to walk the streets of the city to see what a multicultural world we live in.

“In today’s world, football can unify and unite people. Why create boundaries, Sepp?”
