Sir Alex Ferguson believes clubs should be seen to have "a proportion of home-based players" - and feels rivals Arsenal would "protest the loudest" at such a rule.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has announced he will lobby for restrictions on the number of foreign players in each team and Ferguson has voiced his support.

"It´s certainly not wrong that clubs should be seen to have a proportion of home-based players," the Manchester United manager said. "I totally agree (with Blatter) but it would be a problem for a club like Arsenal. That´s why they´ll protest the loudest."
