Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Sepp Blatter´s proposals to restrict the number of foreign players in each team is "completely ridiculous."

FIFA president Blatter´s announced that he will lobby for restrictions on the overseas players in each side and Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has voiced his approval.

But Wenger told Arsenal´s club magazine: "I find the whole proposal completely ridiculous," he said. "The thinking behind it, I believe, is to protect the national teams. But it won´t protect the best players, it will protect the mediocre ones and you don´t win a World Cup with mediocre players, you win it with world-class ones."
