World governing body FIFA hope to impose a policy which would ensure all clubs field at least six homegrown players in their starting line-ups by 2010 but European football chief Platini contends that an individual´s legal freedom to seek employment in any of the continental union´s member nations means there is no way FIFA could make such a ruling.
"It´s impossible," Platini told Sky Sports News. We cannot defend that today; we do not have the legal framework. The free movement of workers is the number one rule in Europe."
